Pre-Sunrise Scenics

The fog held off this morning to enable some nice pre-sunrise lighting along the Maine Coast. By the time the sun cleared the fog and clods, however, it was high and bright so that it would have impossible to include any foreground features in the shot.

As I was walking along the Marginal Way the past couple of days, I picked out a spot where there were rocks out into the water far enough so that a long lens could be used to bring the horizon closer and still have a feature in the foreground.

I used the EOS 5D mark II and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens. All shots were at f/8 and ISO 100. Shutter speeds shown in the caption are for the normally exposed file. I bracketed three exposures +/- 1 1/2 EV but I added + 1/2 EV exposure compensation to the set. So, the three exposures were -1, +1/2 and +2 EV exposures.

All of these images were made from the exact same tripod location between 30 and 35 minutes prior to sunrise.
