Sunrise at Carolina Beach

Cheria and I visited Carolina Beach a number of times while our daughter Amy was living in Wilmington, North Carolina, but this striking view is quite unlike any that we have ever seen. This image depicting a magnificent sunrise with the rays bursting brilliantly through the clouds was captured by Mr. Eric Brown of OneFour Photography.

What an experience it must have been to stroll along the white sands of Carolina Beach as the sun put on such a spectacular show just offshore. God surely had sunrises and sunsets in mind when He created the planet's beaches, and on this morning all of His wonderful handiwork was obviously on display for us all to enjoy.

Here are the camera and settings used to capture this image:
    Camera: Canon EOS 40D
    Focal length: 12mm
    Shutter speed:1/250 second
    Aperture: f/8

Name: George Wolfe
Town: Alameda, CA

Nice job on this one Mr. Brown! The sunbursts truly are fantastic.

I'm pretty sure I have stood on this very spot at Carolina Beach and it is indeed breathtaking. Nice capture Mr. Brown!

We have some gorgeous sunsets here along our coasts as well but this one is something else! Wonderful!!!
