The sunrise was pretty good this morning, though the wind howled down at Durdle Door and the windchill was -1. But it gave me the chance to test out my new ND Pro Glass filter.

This is supposed to give more clarity to images and pictures that simply pop off of the screen. So far, I am pretty impressed with the results.
