First good sunrise in Maine

It wasn't until our second morning in Maine that we had a nice sunrise.  It wasn't your classic red sky.  But since it had been raining all day and night, I was shocked to see the clouds start to blow over revealing blue sky.

I got a late start to the beach.  I like to get there about 30 minutes before sunrise (sunrise is about 6:30) and to stay for another 30 minutes after the sunrise.  That to me is a very magic hour.  I love watching the colors develop.

This image was taken about 7 a.m.  But with that bank of clouds, the sun really wasn't visible until a few minutes after this shot was taken.  But I did like watching the suns rays melt right through the clouds in the middle of the picture.  And the clouds above were picking up some of the golden light.
