Pre-dawn at False Cape State Park, Virginia Beach, Virginia.

I call this one, About to Rise, in reference to the rising sun that is still below the horizon.

This photograph was taken in Virginia Beach, just south of Sandbridge Beach at False Cape State Park.  The dunes are nice and white and for the most part pristine, and the colors of the sky were just beautiful that morning, even without the help of any clouds!

I took this photograph with my Canon 5D mark II, using my Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 lens set to 60mm.  I shot this at f/16 at 1/4sec at ISO 50.

You can purchase this photograph at my website at Fine Art America here.
