Taken yesterday morning at Balmedie Beach during a beautiful pre dawn display. The most vibrant and startling colours where between an hour and half an hour before sunrise, with half an hour to go the colours started to fade and dull.

I have been meaning to photograph this stream for a while (pretty sure it is the Potterton Burn) so with favouravable tide conditions I got my shot. I have recce'd the area with TPE as the shot i really want is the big blush of pre dawn colour right at the mouth of this little stream.

Lovely colours and tones add up to a great semi-abstract landscape.

Beautiful colours here, but I think I prefer the "in-stream" perspective of your subsequent shot...
