Sun Kissed

I woke up every morning to see a sunrise and to get a good beach photograph. I visited this pier five mornings hoping to get good light and a pretty sky. The first four sunrises didn't cooperate with too much clouds and not enough color to make the photograph I had envisioned. During the sunrise of the fifth morning, a huge cloud rolled in, covered up the sun, and I was about to give up when it moved just enough out of the way to allow me to capture this awesome scene. This image is the product of persistence, patience, and a little luck. www.zachlocksphotography.com
