This shot from the top of the barrier dunes at Duck on the North Carolina Outer Banks came just moments before sunrise when the sky colors are at their peak. It’s a fleeting moment. The yellow, pale pink and blues will fade quickly once the sun clears the horizon. Oh, you can shoot at 9 or 10 in the morning or even at noon and two in the afternoon but despite all the settings and filters, to my mind nothing beats what you get at dawn. It really is worth getting up for. No filters on this shot. D800E with an 18-35mm lens. Thanks for the look in and have a great Sunday.
