I hope to be on the island soon but not that early in the day. Nice shot.

Think I will shoot the sunset off Sanibel from Fort Myers beach, that's more my time of day

That's a wonderful photo. How did you expose the shot? I would have thought with most of the sun above the horizon, it would be a completely blown out yellow circle, but none of it is blown out, and the dark water is nicely exposed as well!

Not much of a meteorologist-was shot on the Vernal Equinox-don't know if that has anything to do with it. Just set the Ist DS to P-shot in RAW-have about 15 shots that turned out like this.

Love the colors, love the sun, excellent early morning picture. This is one of my favorite times of the day - I do dawn better than late.
