It’s been a while since I’ve been out to capture a sunrise let alone come home and post the image soon after. With a predicted storm, I had checked the sunrise prediction and gave myself 50:50 odds of a decent showing. Combine that with the annual First Harbor Company Christmas tree being out in the water and I made sure to get up to capture this morning’s view of Little Harbor.

I didn’t see much color at first but then the dawn broke and I made some quick adjustments in location and camera settings to keep focus on the small boat but take in the full scene of a December morning in Little Harbor. I was thinking back to the early years of this boat in a tree and the difficulties Tom had in getting the lights to work for more than a few days at a time. The lights definitely added to this scene and balanced the natural light of dawn.

I do have two matted prints of my Christmas at Sea available if interested. One 11×14 and one 16×20. I printed them for a recent Pop Up event and have them available for delivery before Christmas. Here is a link to the image –
