You gotta get up pretty early for things like this. 5:45am, just a few minutes before the sunrises down here. I love all the colors. This only really works when there is some form of cloud cover on the horizon. Without the clouds there really isn't much to see!

Hello Neighbour,
That's a lovely day break scene. Beautiful warm hue in the atmosphere is looking fabulous. A wonderful composition in limited light. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Regards,

This is like heaven Linda, the soft colors mix of color range from cool blue to hot orange is so soothing. Excellent exposure that created the soft water surface. well done & TFS

Totally awesome. I can tell you love taking pictures of sunsets/rises. I do too. It's just never the same and always breathtaking. Can't wait to go to the beach soon and see some amazing sunrises and sets. We'll be in the Panhandle.

Hello Linda

What a beautiful color scape. The hint of the beauty of all creation. Nice capture. The tones caught with that 50d are spectacular.

A successful subtle rendering of this early morning vista, with enough various colors, shadow and light to make a 5am wake-up worth while.
Reminds of a quote from the musical "Pippin" by Charles:
"Sunrise and Sunset are similar - but not identical."
Nicely Done

Hi Linda,

a kind of photos that i always appreciate much.In low light many well made shades of colour.Mostly warm, but not only.Excellent depth, or better distance, also emotional.This is what it conveys to me.Charming.



Hi Linda,
Lovely and beautiful sunrise Linda,
good tone of colors and contrast,
I like the reflection on a calm water..
Nicely done.

Beautiful! Very calming post! So this is what early morning looks like? Ok, I've been retired for 7 years now but I still wake up with the sun. Love the colors of the sky and the water. Good dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.

Dear Linda

Getting up early was worth it! Fitting title for this pastal serene scene. The clouds do make the difference.

Nicely done!

Kind regards,
