Spurn Point dawn this morning
A 1:30am alarm call and a 2:15am departure was not ideal, arrived at Spurn Point around 4:45am, had a brew and got kitted up for the walk.
Used headtorches as it was very dark and only the moon to help us, a 3 mile walk (some on very soft sand) saw us arrive at the lighthouse just before 6am for some blue hour shots, the Moonlight put paid to that casting shadows that we not ideal so we had to wait for the sun to light up the scene for us.
It was a nice sunrise and we got some nice shots, although I got my wellies full of water whilst in the waves searching out the best angles, it made for a cold and uncomfortable walk back. The lighter coloured sand is actually a dusting of morning frost.
Hard work but definitely worth it.

I think you waited until the light just hit that groyne!

Excellent Ian.

Very nice, I love the textures on the groynes enhanced by that lovely warm morning light, give it a few years and they will be gone.

Fine composition Ian, with the groynes and the lighthouse making a strong triangular shape. Gorgeous light to match. My award, too.
Just stunning coastal scene, creatively composed and executed I really don't think it could be improved.
Instant award

GEA notes - posts marching across the sand, and the landmass sloping down to the sea. There's an order to this that's unusual in landscapes, and it's not just the line of the posts. I like how you've arranged the elements, with the lighthouse as both punctuation and fulcrum for the composition.
