Ummm... is a bit confuse, don't you think? I do!

O.k... this is what happen... I was on the way to work around 6.15am and saw this beautiful light break through the sky. I was in the traffic and boy I just hate this when I am dying to take the photos but I am stuck in the traffic, what if I miss it?

Anyway, I took a detour to "Te Atatu Peninsula" (a subburb), then turn in to a park called "People's park" and take out my equipment and start shooting.

Believe it or not when I took this shot, I was thinking of Dawn! The weirdest thing of all is "The Dawn" is the English translation of "Te Atatu Peninsula". I was having a good laugh by myself (look like a crazy woman) while I was clicking my camera away. What a good laugh, here I am chasing a shot of Dawn and take a detour into a place called "The Dawn" so... here you go... Dawn, this shot is mean for you... I am now Dawn confuse... :P


- Sharpen +1
- increase saturation +10 (just to bring the Yellow out)
- Crop
- Add border
- Resize

Have fun!

hi Sweety!

Thanks for fantastic view of Auckland !

Hi Sweety

A fantastic sunrise, with a superb juxtapositioning of hot & cold colors (yellow & blue). I like the simple composition, sharpness & graphism. Well done!


Very nice, fantastic colors, a very good capture of Dawn for Dawn!



hello sweety.
Very beautiful stereotype between shade and light, the color is marvellous. Beautiful composition and good management of the color.

extra les couleurs de ce coucher de soleil,on dirait les lumieres de la ville,bravo.

Hi Sweety,

What a wonderful photo of the dawn in the Dawn for Dawn... :)) Din Dan Dawn.... :))
Seriously now, this is magnificent! The colours on the horizon are superb and compliment your composition as they contrast with the dark buildings.
Well done!!!

Best time to make photos!! Just a few minutes before sunrise and after sunset. You've created a beauty. I like the skyline on the horizon and the different color sky.

what a wondeful sunrise... lovely shot - and that is something from someone who hates towns/cities...

Talk about double Dutch Sweety, but I get you!!
Now is the start of you seeing these beautiful dawns as you drive into work - while I'm still asleep.
This is STUNNING, and I knew our Dawn would love it. Absolutely terrific! Well done my friend...

Great shot with beautiful colors! This is a nice graphical image and your white line with your signature gives it more punch! Usually I do not like the signatures but yours ,here,is beautiful! It looks like a poster! Very well done! Michel
