My first photowalk of 2012 was one where I decided to capture the mood of the sky as the sun rose over the california coast. Walking along the shoreline, I noticed hundreds of pebbles strewn all over by the waves. In order get the waves to appear ethereal, I used a Lee 0.9 Hard Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter. The scene was beautiful and with the click of the shutter, I had canned my first sunrise of 2012.
