Cocoa Beach Sunrise - used Rule of Thirds

Cocoa Beach Sunrise from balcony
Used of one of the basic Tips in the article, the Rule of Thirds Tip #1 for this photo where used it to locate the focal point in this ocean Sunrise at Cocoa Beach.
The photo was taken from our balcony a couple of weeks ago when we rented a condo at Ocean Landings Timeshare Resort to celebrate our Anniversary. (We now live in Cocoa Beach, but unfortunately not ON Cocoa Beach!)
Sailboats parked on the beach in front of the oceanfront buildings must be common, since notice some sailboat masts sticking up in some of Gene's Photos of Cocoa Beach from the Balcony of their Ocean Landings timeshare Condo in the Web Site photos.
Probably should have gotten more of the close beach and the entire sailboat in the photo since everyone who has looked at the photo so far has asked what the pole sticking up is.
Took several photos of this changing sunrise spaced about 30 seconds apart -- tip #2 in article. Was glad had taken the earlier + later sunrise photos, since in the later photos the red cloud colors were not as bright and the red reflection on the beach was gone.
We enjoyed our Anniversary on Cocoa Beach and came back with some great photos to remember our special time on the beach. Thanks for the Photo Tips!
