"God's Magic In 30 Minutes"

"God's Morning"

These pictures show the beauty that can take place in a matter of minutes even when everything looks like doom and gloom. The first two photos were taken 7 minutes before sunrise. I had hoped for something stunning when I arrived at the beach around 15 minutes before sunrise but was greeted with total cloud cover and very little wind so the surf was as boring as the sky.

I'm rather new to photography and really just getting serious about learning new and exciting technics so I thought what the hell, why not try some long exposure shots. Both of these shots where 2 second exposure at f/9.0 and ISO Of 100.

Was about to call it a morning when two young surfers showed up with their dad so decided to stick around to see if the surf would pick up.

Over the next 15 minutes the changes that took place were truly magic... God's Magic. To see this beautiful morning happen was a humbling experience. If you look hard enough and wait long enough maybe some of God's Magic will appear for you.
