A while ago I had an early morning free, and I’ve wanted to take pictures along the coast near dawn. However, that morning a storm was coming in, and the satellite image from Environment Canada showed cloud already almost too far east. I took a chance and raced out to the cove I wanted to shoot.
I lucked out; there was cloud overhead, but there were many holes off to the east. These conditions are often the best for shooting sunrises. To top it off, the wind was almost calm, the rain under the cloud approaching from the west was making a very dim rainbow, and a fishing boat was heading out for the morning chores. The area was almost totally deserted, and the morning light was glorious. The images below don’t do justice to it.
The rest of the day was rain, drizzle, and fog, but the dawn was worth it. I think you’ll recognise the location.
There was a storm approaching, and I thought there was a bare chance of catching the sunrise before it clouded over. I did make it, but within half an hour it was dismal and intermittent showers started.
There were rain clouds approaching from the west. I have seldom seen a rainbow in the morning, partially because it is usually overcast when rain approaches, and partially because I’m either up too late or in the wrong place.
