The moment when the sun first makes an appearance in the horizon is simply beautiful. The bright colors that slowly burn brighter until it lights up the entire sky is often called the golden hour for photographers. The light is softer, the shadows are not as dark or stark, and brilliant colors add character to the land.
What better way to view a sunrise than on the beach. While exploring Virginia Beach, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph the sunrise. All of our travels last year I managed to sleep through the sunrise every day. I was determined not to this time, and pulled myself out of bed just in time to capture the early morning waves. I would just like to point out that the boardwalk is seriously lacking coffee shops, but I managed to survive and capture some amazing images.
Next week we visit some street scenes from various locations around the Nashville Metro area.
