St. Augustine Sunrise

Sunrise at the Fort

We will meet at the parking lot at the fort whose official name is the  Castillo de San Marcos.   We will begin at 6:00 to allow for photos in the dawn light.  Opportunities include the fort, the Bridge of Lions, and the boats that are harbored in the river.  Sunrise will be at 6:30.   Parking at the Fort is free until 8:00 so no need to feed the machine just for sunrise.

Downtown Walkabout

After sunrise you can continue to photograph in the area of the fort, or come along and roam the streets around the downtown area.  The early light and the fairly deserted streets are an opportunity to capture the architecture without all of the people.  Sunlight and shadows on the buildings are also more pronounced due to the low angle of sunlight.

Breakfast at Georgie's
