Of course, with that come the lows when Mother Nature does not cooperate. “I have been to this location at Portland Head in Maine a couple of times and struck out. This morning, though, was one of the lucky ones. The photo was taken about 45 minutes before sunrise.” www.mattreynoldsphotography.com Kit Sony Alpha 7R with Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f.4 ZA OSS lens at 16mm Exposure 3 sec at f/16, ISO 100…
