I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I had gone out in the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday morning hoping to shoot a unique composition of Abbot Hall, Old North Church and the new St. Michael’s steeple lined up in a row.  As I set up for that shot, I kept glancing over my shoulder watching the sky grow brighter and brighter as the red glow of dawn bloomed behind Cormorant Rock.

I quickly rotated the tripod and composed this image – luckily the entirety of Cormorant Rock fit within the frame using the 600mm lens.  Though the morning featured a cloudless sky overhead, there was just enough of a cloud bank at the horizon to allow for this intense red glow of dawn to form.
