My first posting from the hols in Venezuela,just returned and it was great.
This image taken on the first morning.Got up early to check the sunrise and was faced with this.Stunning is not the word.The colours were fantastic.
Hope you are all well and hope to catch up in the next week or so.

Special thanks to Phil Morgan who loaned me his small Tripod and without it half of my images would not have been possible.I owe you a few beers mate.

Good Sunrise shot. The silhouetted tree works very well as a subject.

My only suggestion would be to use the vignette control in Photoshop (if you have it!) to lighten the corners. (The Vignette control is in the 'Lens correction' filter)
