The seacoast at sunrise:
It was a cloudy morning, the only color was that thin red line along the horizon, and briefly a little red higher up. Then the clouds obscured the sun. Here’s the rocky coast at another spot not far from the place where I took the first image, in black and white:
I used a filter to lengthen the exposure in both images, each was around 20 seconds or so. The second image was long enough to capture more than one incoming wave. It’s a beautiful place.
And you have certainly brought out its beauty in these photos.
Such a beautiful place to visit! Thanks.

I can see that it is, and beautifully captured here.
Now I need to visit more places on the Maine sea coast. This one is so convenient, just a hour away. Thanks!
I hope to get to Maine someday. From what I’ve read, the personality of the state sounds very appealing.
The sea coast is rocky and dramatic. Can’t wait to go back!
That horizontal line of color is a great counterpart to the varied shades of grey. I seem to detect dark brown, too, which is lacking in the black and white photograph.
Yes, the rocks are dark brown in the low light, almost but not quite black. There’s some green seaweed that isn’t noticeable. For that morning, the red line was what I had to work with, maybe more interesting than a more colorful sunrise sky.
Such beautiful, moody shots!!! 🙂 🙂
Thanks, MB. I was hoping for a brighter sky, but this somber look has a different appeal.
The first photo, with the streak of light, is especially appealing to me. I love seeing that coast; ours is attractive and interesting, but just a touch lacking in this sort of drama.
That thin red line was a nice reward for getting up before dawn on a Sunday. The rock outcrops in this spot are beautiful. Now I need to explore more in this area and further north in Maine. Maybe I’ll find the tide pools I’ve been hoping for as well.
Great pictures. Thanks for photography tip
