Dawn from Ellis Creek Bridge on James Island

This morning was one of those mornings I really considered rolling back over in bed.  The only thing that saved my photography effort was my first cup of coffee.  Yesterday I made my way over to James Island to shoot an image of Charleston with docks in the foreground and the Ravenel Bridge in the background but the conditions weren’t right, so I wasn’t able to capture anything worth writing home about and the few images I took I just deleted.  I will return another time when the light is better, maybe for a twilight shoot.  With that said, while there it dawned (no pun intended) on me that perhaps a cool image to take would be with the drone flying behind the bridge up high enough to show the “S” curve in the creek leading out to the Ashley River and facing downtown.  This shot would probably work in the morning or evening but since I didn’t get my shot yesterday I was itching to get up early and see what I could do.   I shot from dawn until after sunrise and the image below is probably my favorite because of the reflection from the cloud and beautiful colors just before sunrise.  If you live on James Island or have been over the bridge in the photos you know how great of a view you get while driving over it.  Happy weekend!
