Dawn Symphony

By hwatt  
Portknockie, Moray, Scotland.

A sunrise of this intensity and colour is a pretty rare thing and I spent the best part of a month planning it. First the sunrise position needed to be close to the rock arch of Bowfiddle rock, secondly I needed a weather window and third I wanted the thrift on the cliff tops to reach full bloom. As luck would have it the sunrise was stunning. The only improvement for me would have been a higher tide to capitalise on the reflective properties of the churning tides and thus minimise the black rock outcrops.

Pentax 67II, 55-100 zoom, 0.75ND grad, f/22 at 4 seconds, Velvia.

superb color on such a lovely scene
As ever your image is fabulous Ian, but there is a need for a good black, maybe it's the scanning?
