How the Photo was Taken

This photo was taken with a Nikon D3400 DSLR camera. (1/250 sec, f/4.5, 70mm zoom)
Apart from a small crop, no alterations were made to the original shot.

Photo Location

This photo was taken on the US/Canadian border, along a stretch of coastline called the Bold Coast, located in the Cutler Coast public land reserve. From the Fairy Head trail head, we hiked 4 miles through the Maine forest and along rugged, seaside cliffs until we got to a spot the locals call Black Point, where we camped for the night. At one point, we must have crossed over into Canada by mistake, because the time on my wristwatch no longer matched the timezone on my iPhone (though it had just a few hours earlier.) We set up camp along the cliffs with the waves pounding below us and I waited eagerly for sunrise. When the sky started to lighten, my hiking partner scaled the treacherous, seaweed-covered rocks to get this shot just before the sun crept over the Atlantic.
