This was at the Beach at Fort Popham. This was the morning 5 of us got up at 3:30, left the hotel at 4:00 to try and catch the sunrise. There wasn't one but the trip was worth it just the same!! I saw this as I was taking my camera back to the car to put it away for the 2nd time (LOL)!!

Some adjustments made to levels, curves and saturation.
