I Took a Chance . . .  by paul10

I Took a Chance . . .

So this morning is my 4:30 start, having to get Robert up for his 5 o'clock swim session (he does three hours even before school) which leaves me with some time to kill before I then have to take Owen to school for his hour long swim session. Anyway, I'd decided that since I was up and more than awake that I'd go back to my local woods and see if I could capture a misty morning after my failed attempt the other day. But when I drove by the woods on the way to school the place looked grey and drizzly and blah! But the clouds were high in the sky and I wondered, that if the horizon was clear, that they would light up real good. So I decided to chance a quick photoshoot at our pier. This was the result. I couldn't believe my luck that not only was the tide in, but how the sky lit up was truly amazing. So I took a chance and it paid off big time for me. Is there a better way to start any day than witnessing an awesome sunrise :-)

Wow! This is such a great shot!
Your settings are so unique and your lens must be awesome. A really wide angle shot at 12 mm and super long exposure!
Wow!!
A true work of art!
You absolutely have to enter it in the Landscape challenge (tag: landscape9)
A FAV!

This is gorgeous, Paul. You really lucked out and did a great job. I never see sunrises as I can't get myself up that early to capture one. LOL

@farmreporter Thank you Wendy. I have tagged the image landscape9. As for my lens, it cost me about £250 and is the equivalent of a 16-28mm on a full frame camera. So not that special, really, but it is a decent lens and I enjoy using it very much :)

A brilliant sunrise scene with the pier adding a great deal of interest as well to the beautiful sky and sea.

Third time lucky, eh? Well done for finding this and well done on all those early mornings! I get up early to cook egg and bacon for my teenager, but not as early as you do for Robert's swimming! Kudos.
