Nags Head Sunrise, 14 March

Figure 1. Sun tangent to horizon with driftwood. Nags Head, N.C. Photo: author.

The log is a driftwood prop I brought down from higher up the beach. This morning there was this marine haze that picked up the sunlight creating the orange band along the horizon. This is reflected in the water of the receding wave. The cloudless sky was not very interesting, though the wisps you see here are reflecting a bit of red-orange.

With a 14 mm focal length the log and the bubbles in the receding sand look far away, but I might just about have touched the near end of the log from behind the camera. The dotty bubbles in the receding wave are from critters in the sand. The sandpipers will be by presently to nibble them up.

ISO 64, 1/30 s, f/9, 14 mm (Nikkor 14-24 mm f/2.8) Nikon Z 7ii.
