Kelly Anne...

By Greyheron
Sleep wasn't a friend last night, so 03:30hrs saw me up and on my way to the Shoebury foreshore...it was never going to be a colourful sunrise. I was hoping for two things from the visit:

1. Illumination from the urban lighting adding colour to the low clouds, which it has done beautifully here Smile
2. Some contrasty black and white images a little later on - I was lucky enough to get a couple of frames that I liked...

I was home by 07:15 for breakfast...

My thanks go to the many generous souls who saw fit to bestow their valued User Awards on my previous image - very much appreciated Smile

A more gentle mood here to go with the resting boat. Too brilliant a sunrise would overshadow the boat.

Far too early in the day for me! But a lovely capture here, great reflection, and the curving of the chain leads the eye in very nicely to the boat Smile
