The Ocean City Pier at Sunrise

Sunrise on the Ocean City Pier in Ocean City, Maryland on the Atlantic Ocean

Photographing the Sunrise Again at the Ocean City Pier

This year I was once again in Ocean City, Maryland for a family vacation. If you follow me on Instagram you have seen the photos from the past week or so. The trip is a family vacation, but I try and get out a few mornings by myself to make some photos. One of my favorite targets is the Ocean City Pier. I think that I go and photograph it more for myself than anything else. I just love sitting on the beach in the dark listening to the ocean. You also cannot beat a sunrise on the ocean.

A Familiar Pair

I am really starting to use my Canon 5D Mark III paired with my Canon 17-40mm f/4 lens quite a bit. I bought the lens at the end of February, and I have been impressed by it. When it comes to landscapes I love the wide angle look. I like to stretch the clouds and the scene a bit. The 17-40mm lens will do just that. When I shoot a sporting event this is the combination around my neck to grab the moments close to me, or just to make a wide angle view of the stadium. I have other options, but this is the one that I have been leaning on the most. Here on the ocean it was the perfect lens to give me the shot that I wanted.
