Evolution of a Sunrise in South Florida

After I left my older son at the airport, I decided to capture the evolution of a sunrise in a Fort Lauderdale Beach. 

I arrived a little early so I got plenty of time to prepare.

 I prepared the tripod, did a few shots to measure the light. The sun was still down, it was dark when I captured this image, I used a long shutter speed, about 20 seconds.

 Even though the image looks bright, the sun was still not showing.

 Then I decided to take a few minutes for myself, admire the ocean and wait for the sun to rise.

It was a magical experience, definitely, I will look forward to do it again, maybe next time with a horse in the formula. Who volunteers?
