Since we are all still having to social distance and in Delaware the beaches are still closed, I have to make due with what I can, so I knew the skies should be clearing, and the overlook to view the ocean is open, so I got there an hour before sunrise, scoped a few angles out and watched as almost all the clouds cleared before the sunrise, and the waves just calmed right down.... so the sun had been up a little while and I have heard many times that you shouldn't shoot directly into the sun, but hey - why not? I stepped it down and as I had my Sigma telephoto 50mm to 500mm, I pulled it back in to 50mm to capture the sun and one lonely cloud. I have lightened it up and adjusted the white balance.
As always, I am open to comments, questions and critics, especially tips for shooting into the sun. do I leave the warm oranges and reds, or opt for a cooler blue? (for this one, I went with the cooler blue tones in the white balance) what about the sun halo?
