Otter Rocks Sunrise with Fissured Rock

After that glorious Clouds over Otter Cliffs image, I returned toward the horizon and made this image.  I never did see a pillar of fire, but there is this leaning pillar of rock. Although all the skies produced some nice color I would have liked at least one clear view of the rising sun.  But all in all it was a very nice bunch of mornings.

  2. Once again it’s the foreground that makes the picture special.

    Your phrase “bunch of mornings” struck me as uncommon. When I searched for it just now I got only 72 hits.

  3. I’m always grateful for you, venturing out to catch the rising sun 😀

  4. To crack and weather granite like that, really conveys a sense of time (a lot of it, I mean).
    I agree with Melissa, thanks for getting all these beautiful sunrises – – and I’ve always heard Acadia mentioned, as the earliest in the continental U.S., right?

    • The weather by the ocean really wears on the rock and the loose ones seem to wander all over the place.
      I am not sure about the park itself, but the summit of Cadillac Mountain is the earliest.


  5. I like images that show reflections of clouds or trees or rocks or whatever. Again the rocks and the water are basking in the warmth of the early sun. I think there is nothing prettier than sunrise or sunset. I know you go to bed by 8pm or about that time so sunsets are not in the equation. I like sunsets but stopped pursing them because they became too much trouble for me. I admire you dogged determination to get those very early morning photo opportunities.

    • We are slowly getting to earlier sunsets. But even with that I rarely do one. I am more apt to get out there for moon rise.
      I enjoy being out early and no longer seem able to sleep late unless I am ill. Given the choice I’d rather get up early. 🙂

    There’s nothing I like more than a sunrise or sunset over placid water. I’m fond of that rock pillar — it looks a bit like a pillow, too. What a nice place to lean back and just watch for a while.

    • The water was fairly calm for a change. It’s a 1/3 second exposure which does help smooth things but maintain a little definition of the waves. I didn’t go out on the rock far enough to know whether it could serve as a pillow but I don’t recall much of the rock there ending precipitously so it may be possible.
