It’s officially summer here in this part of the world and it’s Friday! This photo was taken on my sunrise foray onto the beach when we were in Miami Beach. This young lady, Samantha from @Revived_Living, is a former competitive gymnast who was having some photos taken for her website; she is now a health and lifestyle coach.
Hope your weekend is a joyful one 🙂
Once past the hotel swimming pool and onto the beach, there was more to behold as the moon slowly said farewell to us and to the rising sun.
Sometimes you just have to stop and capture that moment in time for it will never exist again. Yes, I know that there will be other sunrises and moons etc. over this swimming pool but there will never be an exact moment like this again.
One day we actually set our alarm to wake up in time for sunrise on the beach. We had to walk past the hotel pool in order to get to the path to the beach when I saw this and knew I had to capture this wonderful moment. It was the best sunrise of our stay as the other days the sky wasn’t as alive. This is an example of high ISO when you are shooting hand held in a low light situation. The ISO for this shot is 5K and while in the past this would’ve made one horribly noise filled image, today’s modern cameras can handle this and higher without too much damage to the image. Some people even like a certain amount of noise in their images for that old film effect. Plus, there are so many noise reduction programs and other ways to reduce noise in Photoshop and Lightroom. What was important to me was capturing this oh so brief moment in time no matter what the ISO was.
It and the rest of the shots we took that morning were worth getting up at 5:30 in the morning on our vacation. I will share the color version with you tomorrow.

Bah Habah if you are so inclined to say it that way. Bar Harbor, Maine a town on Mount Desert Island in Maine is where it is said that you can see the sun rise first in all of the United States. I was going to go down to the harbor to take a sunrise photo anyway – the other best option was from the top of Cadillac Mountain but I knew my chances of actually getting there and getting a spot were better at the harbor – the first sunrise bit just gave me the will to get up so very early.
It was worth getting up early for and a great start for my return to Maine series. Picking up where I left off last… again.
And I think it said no diving but it’s a bit hard to read. Sunrise from a pier in Key West taken in 2013. I really could use some warm ocean time right now! I want to get away I want to fly away yeah yeah yeah! Those are your two ear worms for the weekend. Have a good one everybody.
PS. You still can vote in the flower poll I posted yesterday. C’mon! Let your choice be heard 😉
