See my tripod in the photo? That’s where I was set up to watch the sunrise. The downside is that the “hill” in front of the Leuty Lifeguard Station (LLS) totally changed my photography plan. I had planned to set up west of the LLS so I could get photos of the LLS with the rising sun. The hill is a man made thing, relatively recent. The upside to the unexpected hill is that I could shoot from a raised perch. My tripod is about 12-15 feet above the beach, which opened up opportunities that wouldn’t have existed otherwise. You’ll see what I mean as I post more photos of the day.
