The golden light of the winter’s sun rising along the beach at False Cape State Park, Virginia.
Winter is often the best time to go out and do landscape and seascape photography. Yes it is cold, but the rewards are incredible.
One of the best reasons is the nice golden light that last for more than just 30 minutes (as it does in the middle of summer). The light just gives everything this beautiful glow that is like nothing else.
On this visit to Sandbridge Beach, I crept up a dune and waited for sunrise, and I wasn’t disappointed. The sun lit the sky with this incredible golden light that bathed the sea oats that covered the dune before me. It was beautiful.
It helped that there was enough hazy clouds in the horizon to catch the light and add to the overall feeling of the scene before me!
