Red Dawn

The night before I shot this, I was looking around for places to shoot at sunrise.  I knew these old pier posts in the ocean could make a good composition so I decided this was the place.  It was only a short walk from where I was staying and I was hoping that with a good sunrise I could create a nice piece out of it. Well, the following morning I got down there and fired away a bunch of photos and didn't understand what was happening as the images were all red.  When I figured out that I had adjusted the color temperature when shooting the night before, and started looking at the captures, I decided not to change back the color temp and continue shooting as it was.  Color temperature alone won't give this affect, but with the warm lights on the walkway behind me and the thick haze and rain in the air, it must've contributed to the color I was seeing in my camera.  I absolutely loved it and shot as much as I could of this old pier!
