Met up with the Wansbeck Wanderer on the church point rocks this morning with some decent light and a lively sea.
Minutes after the sun rose I panned the camera around to exclude the sun ( and flare ). Caught the first rays hitting the rocks

Another cracker! I noticed the red as well when viewed large, is it a bit of flare?
