Sunrise at Fort Story Beach, VA

I have been trying to get out for a run during the early morning hours. The sun was rising just after I had finished my workout so I RAN to my car with my camera to snap a few pictures on the beach at Fort Story near the Cape Henry Lighthouse.

My sunrise party ended when an MP told me that I wasn’t allowed on the beach with my camera until after 10 o’clock am. I was wearing running clothes! He was also very interested in what I was taking pictures of. The military does not like it when you take pictures of their buildings or communication towers.
