Out early (yet again!!) at Spurn Head for the sunrise. Not had much luck here, as last time too much cloud, this time the cloud burnt away within seconds of the sun rising....never to return Sad

A good day touring the East coast though Smile

i think this picture has plenty of impact, the sunset, the movement on the sea and the groynes receding to the rear. alan h

6 May 2008 10:32PM got the shot! It is terrific....if you had twenty shots this good it would dilute the effect and sense of achievement you must get from capturing a moment in time with such skill. Superb image...Andy I

It did Rich, either I was busy, or the weather was rubbish...and even the day I went this was the best of the weather!!

Dave, many thanks indeed, up there with an EC is an award from yourself Smile I'm also a fan of Pink Floyd (and was at a concert for Australian Pink Floyd the weekend before last), so the award works twice Smile

Quite beautiful Martin, you obviously dont need a lot of sleep. But as the saying goes its the early bird that catches the sunrise. Well done.
