What makes getting up at 4:40 AM worthwhile? An incredible sunrise over Lake Champlain! Moments like this leave one in awe at the beauty of God’s creation.
I managed to arrive on the beach a few minutes before the sun arrived on the horizon. Once it came up, the heavy contrast between rocks and the brightness of the sun offered an excellent opportunity to experiment with exposure settings as well as to perfect combining multiple exposures in Photoshop.
