Getting up for dawn on a Saturday morning after a hard week is never easy but this time of year is about as easy as it gets! The shame here was that the next frame had the boat clear of the pier but suffered slightly from motion blur so I decided on this one with it almost looking like an extension to the pier. Thanks for looking and have a good evening.

Wonderful light in this early day composition, Alun, the image generally cool but with just a hint of new day warmth creeping along the horizon.

Your clock looks a bit out of kilter for a dawn shot, Alun. Lovely cool tones with a hint of warmth on the horizon.

Wonderful image Alun. Do you really need so much titling information at the foot of the image though, I find it a little too much?
