01-01-11 Sunrise

This photo is a result of being in the right place at the right time – with the right lens, which was a 17-40 mm wide angle lens. The beach is along the so-called Maya Riviera south of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Seing the sunrise along this stretch of beach is a bit rare since there always seem to be clouds along the horizon. But on this day, the sun showed its face for about 5 minutes and so I get the great play of light along the sand.

  1. This is an incredible shot! I can feel the crispness of the morning air and the light playing across the sand is simply magnificent. This is a perfect example for why it pays off to get up early 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!
