Behind the Image: Sunrise at Nauset Beach

Cape Cod is a popular summer destination. One fun summer activity is getting up in the wee hours of the day and head out to one of the many beautiful beaches The Cape has to offer. Nauset Beach is one of the best and stretches aong the Atlantic Ocean for miles. This morning we were greeted by a spectacular sunrise. The early morning sunlight painted the sky in stunning blue and orange hues while the sun beam beautifully reflected in the ocean waters and the the beach.

Aperture setting was f/5.6 providing a fast shutter speed of 1/500 of a secondat ISO100 to freeze the waters. During post processing I followed my routine workflow of cleaning up the image from unwanted dust spots, adjusting light, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final image of "Oh What A Beautiful Day".

Good light and happy photo making!
