Sunrise in Puerto Rico

Events beyond my control have everything to do with the sunrise. The first two mornings in Puerto Rico the first morning light was hidden greatly by clouds rolling in from the South. The third day the sun was strong enough to poke through and provide a radiant display. Wind was blustery this morning as you can see by the palm trees and the distortion in the clouds. The camera’s shutter was open for eight seconds to give the proper exposure, so with strong winds the clouds had ample time to fly through the picture. Pictures like this make the pre dawn wakeup call worthwhile.
