At least you won't have a 12 hour drive to get there. Looking forward to some photos when you get back...Have a great time.

They are awesome shots! The only thing that caught me off-guard was your comment that the second picture was taken a couple of minutes after the first one and the sun was higher. Since I'm a West-coastie, I was thinking sunSET not sunRISE. After all, the sun is supposed to SET over the ocean, not RISE over it!

While others might question the scene, I do not. The sun looked very similar a couple of weeks ago when I was watching it first come overthe distant horizon in the Mojave Desert. We were driving at 65 mph and my pictures taken through the windshield and side windows aren't half as good as these!

Real nice, Bigdawg. Like some others I prefer #2, but both are very fine.

One advantage of living in a small country surrounded by water is that I can go to the east coast in the morning (45 min drive) and then enjoy the sunseton the west coast after having dinner at home (1 hour drive).What do the Americans and Aussies say about that?:blah:

Very definitely - WOW!!!

I love that second shot, especially the little reflection at the water's edge. Was that planned or just serendipity? Whatever, fantastic shots.

Hey now Big continents, little spots. I grew up in Miami, Fl. We could get away with those tricks

Of course it's hopeless in CT (little known fact, Connecticut once stretched from coast to coast when settlers didn't realize how huge the continent was. It was declared the state's borders went west as far as the next oceanic body. This fact untested and brought to you by my 2nd grade history teacher)

At the end of July our family's spending a week at the beach here, if I'm really lucky I'll get one photo as good as the Dawg's then.

Mtngal, I could see how that would throw you..LOL. As far as questioning the scene, I really don't know why anyone would..Those that know me know I'll Post Process at the drop of a hat...But when I say no Post processing done..That is exactly what was done. I say again..These were resized and some cloning was done to remove some dust specs...I tried using Neat Image for noise clean up but didn't like the way it made the photo look. Just looked better to me with out any post processing. And I'm not one of the purist that think Post processing is an evil either. Anyway here is the EXIF Data for these 2 photos...Even though it is the same for both photos I'll post both anyway.

BB I thank you for the kind comments on these photos. I can get two versions of the ocean but have to travel 10-12 hours for the Atlantic and 4-5 hours for the Gulf of Mexico. That's why most of my landscapes are woodlands and streams. LOL

The reflection was "planned" after I saw it...Just couldn't get the height I needed and it would have changed the position of the sun and pier anyway. Thanks for the WOW!! Glad you enjoyed them.

Looking forward to seeing those when you get back...You may be able to add some rocks to the photo that would have really helped mine.
