Friday morning, the 13th of July, I was up at 4:30 a.m. and went down to a beach near my campground.
I settled in to stare across the fjord bisecting Mount Desert Island to wait for solar lift off scheduled for 5:01 a.m.
I was the only spectator on the beach, but a fisherman was earlier to the scene than I. Little did he know I was reeling him in with my 600 mm zoom lens.
When endeavoring to capture the image of a sunrise, all you can do is try. You can take a picture of a tiny piece of it. If you get a panorama, any image smaller than a billboard seems like a postage stamp. But I keep trying. What can’t be said in one picture, can be suggested by many.
Here is a closer look.
And with even more tantare.
