Ocean - Allie Kelley

To capture this image, I planned to wake up in darkness to go searching for the first light. The journey here involved hiking before 6AM up a winding oceanside trail and running to the end to meet the sun as it rose above the water. As the path reached the edge of the cliff where the lighthouse stood, I spotted a nicely elevated rock and began to climb. Looking down and out across the ocean, I watched the sun illuminate the lighthouse with its natural glow.
