Sunrise over North Pine Dam

We didn't expect much for sunrise with that large bank of clouds there, but got some nifty rays anyway.

With the higher water levels in the dam compared to the last time I shot the sunrise here, most of the foreground interest is now under water.

    Nice rays David, love the light rim on the clouds.
    No one is complaining about too much water in the dams hey.

    'tis ok. Not entirely happy with it.
    hehehe come and wash my house then ;-)
    That's true ;-)
    Worked well, thanks ;-)
    My big plan was to catch the moon rise just before the sunrise, but those clouds nixed that idea, just as well they provided rays as a substitute ;-)

    Lovely lighting, Dave. The rays are pretty speccy. That Ray Machine is doing overtime.

    I don't mind it. I still think it was nice of Kane to let you borrow the Ray machine.

    Thanks Matt :)
    Sure is Thea ;-)
    Yeah, I would have preferred a slightly different location (i.e. with some interesting foreground stuff).
