Photos from Fort Lauderdale at the beach during sunrise in, Broward County, Florida, over the Atlantic Ocean. This is a set taken from my early morning trip to Fort Lauderdale to catch the sunrise. I really need to go back and get some more images from that area. The only reason I don’t go as often is because of the traffic. Fort Lauderdale drivers are crazy and the amount of traffic there is unbareable. That’s why I left Broward County after I graduated from the Art Institute.
