Sunrise On The Lagoon

Lagoons and Lighthouses

I have been wanting to get some pictures of the sun rising over the water while I was on vacation in Pensacola so I got up early one morning and headed to a park that was near the water. The official sunrise was around 6 AM but when I looked out the window at around 5:45AM it was already very light. The park I was going to was only about five minutes away so I grabbed my stuff and headed out. I crossed a small bridge on the way to the park and as I looked at the horizon I knew this was the place to make my shot.  I parked and set up my tripod on the walkway on the bridge and started shooting. The sun moved above the horizon really quick so I only managed to get a few shots and then the moment was gone. Then I went to the other side of the bridge and took a few shots in the other direction away from the sun. Here are two of the shots I liked out of the ones I took.

Since it was still early I decided to go to the Naval Air Station and take some pictures of the Pensacola Lighthouse close to the entrance to the bay.  I  took a lot of pictures from a variety of angles and locations and sweated a lot. The heat index that day got up to 107 degrees. When I first got to the lighthouse I thought it had a weird shadow on it. When I got closer I could see that it was being painted and they were only half way around it. Here are some of the shots I liked.

It finally got so hot by 9:30AM that I decided to call it a day and head home.

Until next time —
