Newport Cliffwalk Sunrise 1
Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 25 January 2012 in Landscape & Rural.
Using The Photographer's Ephemeris and Google Maps I decided that Ochre Point would be a good location for sunrise on 1/15/12. I arrived to the location I had scouted on the computer about the 40 minute prior to sunrise. I was immediately surprise to find a long line of fencing separating the walking path from very steep cliffs leading in the sea. This was quite different from the sunset location that I have shown over the past week and a half. I was flustered. It seemed like it was going to be impossible to incorporate a foreground and get the types of shots that I wanted.
I started walking briskly south hoping that the fence would end and that I could safely scramble down to the rocks and closer to the ocean. Eventually I found a spot where could hop a short guard rail and set up my camera in an unobstructed position. It was not ideal, but with the sunrise getting closer and precious twilight burning away, I needed to start shooting.
Please follow me for the next few posts as I show you the sunrise at Newport, Rhode Island.
