I got up at the crack of dawn and went to the beach to photograph the first sunrise of the brand new year but sun did not come up at all; not even a tint of red/pink/orange in the sky was present. Well you know what they say if life gives you lemons make a lemonade. That overcast cloudy weather was perfect for some slow shutter ocean photography. I did not even have to use my ND filters. My circular polarizer was enough to get the effect.
