Shipwreck at Sunrise by paul10

Shipwreck at Sunrise

I questioned my sanity when I rolled out of bed at 4am this morning, made myself a coffee in my lens flask, and headed to my local beach to photograph this old, and only recently discovered (by me at least) shipwreck. I was disappointed when I arrived to find my weather app had gotten the tide times wrong - it was supposed to be low tide when the sun came up and therefore I should have been able to walk all around the wreck, but the tide, as you can see, was anything but out. In fact, it was well on the way to coming back in which makes sticking around so far out a tricky business on our stretch of coastline. But I did manage to grab a couple of shots. I loved the tranquillity of the slowed water and muted colours in this image. And there really is no better time to visit the beach and knowing you have it all to yourself - for a while at least.

Apologies for my absence. I was supposed to start year 3 on May 1st, but some life stuff (sorted now) got in the way, so I'm not quite there yet. A few more morning like this and I should be ready to go :) Hope you are all enjoying this lovely Bank Holiday weather. Hope it lasts :)
Oh this is fabulous, well done for the early start. Colours are gorgeous. Am jealous of this shipwreck!
