Window with a View - Sunrise at Baja California Sur

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The 2012 Panoramio August Contest requires photos taken to East, West, North or South. I remembered, that one Full Moon Morning I took shots almost simultaneously to the East and to the West. Now let me take the contest one step further: A photo taken at the same time from the same location to the West and to the opposite direction, the East! This shows the sun rising above Isla Carmen in the Loreto Marine Park Mar de Cortes, Baja California Sur. Here the EXIF data:

Sunrise shooting East: 1csr DSC03057 May Sun Rise Mar de Cortes.jpg Date Taken: 2012-05-07 06:52:18 Camera: SONY SLT-A65V Exposure Time: 0.001s (1/1000) Aperture: f/8 ISO: 400 Focal Length: 30mm (45mm in 35mm) SIGMA 30mm F/1.4
