The Early Bird Gets the Worm

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 18 January 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

One of the first shots of the sunrise that I captured as I finally arrived beyond the breakwater and was exposed to the open waters of Lake Michigan. The vast area of steamy water was a sight to be seen as you'll see in tomorrow's finale.

Photo taken on January 10, 2010.

SONY DSLR-A300 1/200 second F/10.0 ISO 100 22 mm

Steven, you have given us who don't live in the frozen Northlands a really different perspective on sunrises over the water. Thank you for this series; I doubt if I will ever experience something cold and dramatic as this first-hand, but through your photos, I will have all but "been there" in person. Excellent.
