Maine is a photographer's dream location for shooting landscapes. However, I have quickly learned that obstacles do exist to getting the landscape you want. First, if you are on the coast, foggy and cloudy weather occur frequently. So even if you know when the sun rises, you may not see it. Secondly, if you are going to the beach be sure and check the tide tables. I had scouted this picture of Friendship Harbor the day before but it was high tide. When I arrived it was 2 hours before low tide and the waterside spot I had identified was now 40 yards away from the waters edge. But the weather was clear and a nice pastel sunrise was there to be captured once I located a new spot to place my tripod. I used my Tamron 10-24mm @ 10 mm and f22. The shot is a 5 shot HDR composite.
