Yesterday I went to shoot the sunrise at Lake Michigan. I'm not a morning person so I haven't photographed very many sunrises. I had hoped to shoot on the beach to the right of this picture, but it was inaccessible because the water was too high. So I had to shoot here instead. The panorama took awhile to stitch and process but I think I finally got it right. I want to try this again at a better location but it's hard because most Lake Michigan shoreline around here is either private property, doesn't look natural enough, or it's in a park that doesn't open until after sunrise. I made this panorama at 24mm and used a Tiffen 4 stop ND filter.

Thanks Bob and Dave. I'll post a few other pictures from the morning once I finish processing them.
