Liquid Gold

Sunrises are quite amazing when clouds are involved. From dusky pink through to rich blues and yellows and then brilliant gold when the sun finally pokes through the clouds. Shame they occur at such an ungodly hour.

    Just lovely David!! Worth the effort of getting up early for (and it's getting earlier every day at this time of the year)

    ...and thanks for your kind words at my exhibition :-)

    I haven't been to Wivenhoe myself, but it sure look like a nice place.

    Great job!

    Indeed it is Jill, it's a cruel paradox really, when it's warm enough to get up for the sunrise it's far too early, and when the sunrise is at a reasonable time, it's too cold to get up!

    It's a bit dry during the day, but sunrise or sunset is worth being there for :)

    pretty fantastic - you getting up early to take the photo too - hehe.
    I like the strong contrasts here, the gold and black but also the blue sky
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep and as you've probably noticed, dawn is a lot earlier here than it is there ;-)
