Sunrise Off The Stern

"Sunrise off the stern" is a phrase one might hear while sailing the high seas aboard a large ship or boat, the stern being the rear or aft section of the vessel, for my non-nautical friends. :-) Such was the case in the image below as I stood across the outer harbor section of Baltimore along the Patapsco River. It was during that magic hour when the sun had just broken over the horizon and began to burn away what was a dense fog. At times like this the sky becomes a painter's palette, with nature doing the painting, and the results can often be stunning for a brief period.

These large ships really stood out in a scene that I wanted to capture and remember. The peace and solitude of an early morning along the shoreline is something to behold.

Back at the computer, the images were opened in Lightroom 4 where one of several Sunrise presets (Sunrise 5) I've created was applied. Surprisingly, this was one of those instances where the job was done right then and there. Lucky me. ;-)
