Photoblog: The world, one image at a time.

tequila sunrise…

Puerto Morelos Sunrise

This seaside sunrise panoramic was the fruit of my efforts to arise before sunrise after a week of fun in the sun in Mexico (no small feat, especially when bedtime was 2am!!!  Darn DeGrassi reruns in Mexico that hooked my entire family!!).  I can’t truly convey with words how tranquil and silent the sunrise was…no vacationers on the beach yet, no playing in the pool…just the sun, sea, and the lapping waves.  Simply stunning.

This photo was taken at the beach of the Ocean Coral and Turquesa Resort in Puerto Morelos, Mexico.  I merged two sequential photos into one panoramic image using Adobe Photoshop CS3.  The panel was originally 7 photos long, but that caused a large curvature in the image…plus one of the images contained a gentleman strolling the beach in a Speedo, with all his glory bathed in morning rays.  Yup.  The panorama was reduced to the two panels that I thought came the closest to doing the sunrise justice.  Obviously, taken with the Canon Powershot G7. Contrast and color saturation enhanced in Photoshop to make the photos look as much like the original sunrise as possible!!  Enjoy!!
