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

Hallo Volker - Gute Fotos werden auch belohnt - Glückwunsch und FAV 9 von Wolfgang - Ich freue mich über Deinen großen Erfolg -

Volker P. Schenk on January 5, 2013

Hallo, ALLWO, danke fuer Deine Glueckwuensche, aber ich weiss nichts von einem Preis, ich gehe davon aus, dass Google einen Gewinner informiert? Ich war sehr beschaeftigt die letzte Zeit, wie Du von den Gallerien auf meiner Webseite sehen kannst... Bitte lass mich wissen, wo ich den "Preis" finde! Und nochmals herzlichen Dank fuer Deinen Kommentar, ich kann bei Dir eine aehnliche Passion fuer Fotografie spueren als ich Sie in mir habe.... Von Ende Januar an bin ich wieder zurueck in Munchen....

Volker P. Schenk on January 5, 2013

Hallo, to all of you congratulating me on my "prize" - I do not know anything about it; Google obviously does not inform you....Maybe, someone can enlighten me? Thank you very much for your kind comments, you know, how much work it is getting good shots out! I hope, I get more information, as I desperately "need" a D800 or A99!

Giuseppe Lazzara on January 5, 2013

Sunset perfectly framed! Congratulations on your prize!
