As previously described in my blog http://photobee1.blogspot.com/2011/10/sunrises-over-buzzards-bay.html I have continued to photograph sunrises over Buzzards Bay on Gooseberry in Westport, Massachusetts. In order to photograph sunrises, I have to rise up early enough so I can get there at least one hour to 45 min. prior to actual sunrise. Sometimes the best colors occur prior to sunrise. You also have to look all around because even behind you at 180° away from most sunrise beautiful colors can occur. Each day brings a different look to the area.
I have been photographing either in manual or aperture priority at a ISO of 100, and with the f-stop of the lens between f 11 and F 22, in order to get the best depth of field. To bring out the beautiful colors and the details, I post process, utilizing Photoshop and Lightroom along with the judicious use of NIK software, usually VIVEZA and Color Pro EFEX.

I am not the only person that comes to view the sunrise
Here is a video of a sunrise.
