Folly Beach Pier

One of the stops on my trip along the East Coast was at Folly Beach, SC.  I went to photograph the pier at sunrise.  I always try to get to a location well in advance to give myself plenty of time to prepare and be ready for the action.  Being early....real early, enabled me to shoot some "blue hour" shots.  

Blue hour is basically like the "golden hour", only the atmosphere has a very blue tone.  It is caused by the sun being a significant distance below the earth's horizon at twilight either before sunrise or after sunset.  The indirect sunlight takes on a very blue hue.

ISO 100, 24mm, F/16 @ 20 seconds

This image was taken with my Sony A7R, Metabones Adapter and Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Lens.  The setup was mounted on my Vanguard Abeo Plus 323CT Tripod.
