In Place of Mountains

f/4.5, 1/500, 70-300mmVR@70mm, DSC_5918, 7:18AM, ISO800

I captured this cloud formation shortly after sunrise from the shoreline of Miami's South Beach. The channel markers for Goverment Cut (Port of Miami) can be seen in the distance. Though we lack mountain's here we have wonderful views of the sky (especially out over the water) and my eyes are forever "in the clouds".

Exif: F Number: 4.5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/500 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 800, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 70.00 mm, Model: NIKON D40

Amazing cloud formations! Perfect composition, with a small part of the sea, and the sunlight showing a bit in the upper corner. Well balanced! #5810260
