Sunrise at Cape Spear

A sunrise at Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America, is well worth an early rise during the summer months. In winter, it would be very cold with the wind blowing off the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean, but just as beautiful no doubt.

I wanted to share the first one to show you how bright the sun is as it rises above the horizon. It is almost too bright to photograph and the photo is very dark except for the sun, which is still partially hidden. DO NOT stare at the sun for any amount of time or you could damage your eyes.

The second was taken minutes later when the sun was behind the clouds. I think the second is the better photo. If you want to see other photos of this sunrise, visit my Photo of the Day Blog and search for Cape Spear. There are 4 photos posted on September 9, 2006.
