Another shot taken whilst on my Travels in Namibia this year.
This was taken from the Balcony at the Lodge where we were staying,at 5.30am, and i tried using the trees as a sort of frame for the beautiful sunrise.
The whole place just seemed to be filled with the sound of the Birds Dawn Chorus.
A wonderful place.

Many thanks for all your comments and views,apologies for the long silences,but i have a few days to get back online now after a long busy few weeks.
so i'll get back to you all a.s.a.p :o)

I'm sure you'll be arranging a date soon then? :oD

like how you've used the trees to capture the sunrise, its created a nice sharp silhouette of the trees and also given you that nice warm orange glow. As you know sunsets are one of my favourite subjects so I particularly like this Sunrise shot of yours.

I like this one very much Julie, the colour graduation is superb, you should sell lots of prints of this one, no problem, would look great as a poster or large print on a wall, and the sun peeping out between the 2 trees adds that touch of class.
Great work as always.

Wow! this is absolutely stunning - first of all i am going to award you the new MC award (morpyres choice) - it is like an EC but mine =)

i really must change my life so i can venture into the world and capture great images like this.

great composition - i really like the way the gradient of the sunrise sky colours work down the image to the beautifully framed sun.

just looking at this photo i can imagine how wonderful it was to actually be there

keep up the great work =)
