January Light Photo Challenge | Day 10

“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.” – Aaron Rose


Taken in 2011 in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, this photo was one of a series of early morning shots that captured the rising sun. I had just taken a photography course and was eager to try out what I’d learned. Unfortunately, my camera was sub-par and I didn’t own an iPhone yet.

However, it sharpened my observation skills and I did get some decent captures during the “golden hour” that morning on the beach.

While the rising sun was still a tiny orb over the horizon, I focused on this sandcastle. With the tiny toy soldier, his rifle raised in victory, atop the turret and the seagulls gliding low over the water it made for a nice picture.
