Its hard to drive to work in the morning and watch these beautiful sunrises over Rangitoto without stopping and getting the tripod out. I just love the shapes of the volcanic rocks along this coast

A nice one Jack,the large amount of foreground dark rocks are well balanced with the smaller black area of the island as wel as with the sunrise colours & reflections,glad to see, you take the time to stop & smell the roses, as the saying goes.I like those clouds.

Beautiful scene Jack, I couldn't resist stopping either.

The DOF is perfect, even the foreground grasses are sharp.

Must be hard facing the traffic...

Hi Jack,
Now that is an awesome scene. The rocky shore with the reflections of the rising sun in the water makes this a superb shot. Nice to see the bush at the right hand corner. You did not lose your eyes in the brilliant sky but thought about the foreground as well!

Hi Jack,
A spectacular sunrise shot adorned with fantastic PP work.
A considerable depth into the perspective with the yellow cast reaching to the FG paddles and thus creating an interesting reflection.
A nice shot, indeed!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Ciao Jack, fascinating sunrise, wonderful reflections, fantastic warm colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Love the colors you have got in the reflections on the still waters in the FG, Jack!

A well thought low POv for this beautiful scenic location.
The colors in the sky are just marvelous and one can enjoy them for ages.
Great light control and perfect management of exposure as well.

Kind regards,

Hi Jack...beautiful colors and tones...nicely composed shot.

Hi Jack. What a stunning image you have here. The reflections at Milford rocks are brilliant. And you show us how rough these old volcanic lava rocks really are.
Well done - and HI to Margery
