This was a sunrise at Lighthouse beach in Santa Cruz, CA. I was walking back from shooting a natural bridge and the sun was dead in my eyes, I thought I would try to play with the sun and see if I could make something out of a usually bad receipe of full on sun with no filters. This is a nice stretch of beach where people bring their dogs to play. I like watching the dogs as they seem to be in heaven here. The owner came over to me later and asked if he could get me to shoot him and hiis best friend as he had no good pictures of them together. I was glad to finally have sent him his photos (sorry it took two months) and he was very happy indeed and sent a very nice email after receiving them.
