Jupiter Lighthouse Sunrise from US1 Bridge

May 2, 2011 | Florida Beaches & Coasts, Sunrises & Sunsets

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

I hate shooting from this spot because I always feel like someone’s going to push me over the bridge. There’s not much of a barrier here to prevent someone from going over. The bridge itself doesn’t have much room so the thought of a car hitting me also runs through my mind.

But I guess it was worth it because this is the only spot where you can get a good view of the Jupiter Inlet in the distance with the sunrise and the lighthouse. The Sportsman’s Marina is also an added bonus and gives this photo that warm Florida feel.
