"Navy Beach Sunrise"
August 2009, Mono Lake, California
I shot this image at 5:49 am, about 10 minutes before sunrise. I actually prefer the colors of dawn over those of sunrise. Dawn colors are almost always more intense than sunrise colors, and of equal importance is the uniform light which dawn provides. This particular image is actually a series of three images which I stitched together in order to create one giant panorama.
