    I don't live near a beach, but I found myself driving an hour the past couple of weeks to catch the Sunrise at the beach. I must say the drives were well worth it.

    This one with a 10stop ND

    Couldn't agree more!!!

    Excellent work Gary :thumbsup:

    On another note, seeing such amazing results makes me kinda disappointent with myself... I too woke up very early today (04:30) to capture some sunrise beach long exposures, only to return home and feeling angry after loading the photos on the laptop :( I guess I just can't do it

    C'mon Nick! You've posted photos here that make me want to chuck all of my gear and go back to finger painting. :p

    You gotta be kidding Nick. You certainly can do it. You have been posting some killer shots. Just remember, it's all about the light. Something out of our control. I was lucky enough to have great light both weekends. You may not have been so lucky. Try again next week and you may be singing a different tune.

    And thanks for the feature!

    Thanks Ad. The combination of the clouds overhead and the Sun over the horizon and the LE created the mood. About a minute after I shot this the Sun was engulfed by the clouds. Right time right place.

    Very nice. I love me some long exposures. Strangely, the second shot moves more. :)
