Monterey Bay Sunrise

This photograph was made at sunrise overlooking Monterey Bay from Point Pinos.  I used my Singh Ray Vari-ND filter to use a slow shutter speed so the surf would be blurred.  Check out info on this filter here:  Singh Ray Vari-ND filter I hope you enjoy this one!  You might enjoy seeing my portfolio from the area:  Big Sur
