Baja Sunrise
 

Baja Sunrise, Sea of Cortez, Baja California
 

Sea of Cortez

Baja California, Mexico
 

The strong primary colors dominating this scene are balanced by the dark silhouettes of the fishing boat, seagull, and the shadows on the waves. I was waiting for the boat to arrive at this position, and the seagull just conveniently decided to show up. A long telephoto lens yields a large sun for a very graphic effect, balancing the shapes of the boat and bird. The composition divides the sky and sea in half.
