Dawn over Las Olas – Fort Lauderdale Sunrise

Purchase Image Download:

Beautiful Sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

A beautiful tranquil sunrise brings dawn to South Florida. This location is right off the coast of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Despite its proximity to the city, this is actually Las Olas Beach, with Fort Lauderdale Beach being further north. The term “Las Olas” tends to bring to mind the iconic strip of restaurants and shops, not the beach. However I chose to use it in the title to pay homage to what the words actually mean: “the waves”. As I sat on the quiet beach waiting for the sun to rise, clouds and sky ever changing, the only constant was the persistent drum of the waves lapping the sand. It made for a beautiful morning that appealed to all the senses. Usually a bustling tourist attraction, at this hour there are only a few people on the beach, and a few ships dotting the Atlantic Ocean.
