Tried something a little different from what I usually do while shooting HDR. I used my telephoto lens! Usually I shoot with my wide angle about 99% of the time. The only reason I used my telephoto was because I had a hard time getting a good composition. I wanted to get the sun to hover above the pier and the only way to do that was to move about 50 yards north. So I ran as fast as I could before the sun got to high and ended up with this shot.
