Superb as always Chris, but give me winter any day.
Good light from 8am to 4pm and a little either side is great for a lazy big guy like me! Smile
I love my bed way too much to make money at landscaping!

The light is very good and I also like the texture of the water. What was your exposure time on this one?

This is a real cracker of an upload. The colours look fab.

Have to confess that I'm not an early riser, but on the odd occasion that I have ventured out for sunrise, I've been left quite disappointed.

Tech query here. With lens at 17mm, you've got bags of dof anyway. Couldn't you have got away with say f8 & a faster shutter speed, avoiding movement in boat?

Love the colour from the wood underneath, and the additional blue from the boat looks good too

At least the good thing about getting up at that time is there is literally no one else around and you can go back to bedwhen you get home for a couple of hours! Smile

A cool shot Chris. Maybe you should have gone longer on the shutter speed to emphasise the boat movement!!
