Sunrise at Arugam Bay

By himalk
Taken just before sunrise, Arugam Bay, Sri Lanka.

It was a special moment, as it was the first time I ever saw a sunrise over the sea : )

Great framing and dramatic effect done by the trees silhouettes. I also like the feeling of depth given by the clouds transparency. CLICK

The colours are so dramatic, from the thumbnail I thought it was a forest fire. Beautiful shot, click.

Thankyou everyone, I was actually thinking of cropping off the dark clouds at the top, since it's a bit messy.

But since nobody thinks that the clouds are destructive, I guess it's good that I kept it. Thanks again. Really glad u like it.

Hi Hiranya! This is a lovely composition filled with rich colors!! You should do these landscape shots more and share with us the beauty of Sri Lanka... =)

Thanks Sze, we're not fortunate enough to be able to go to the east coast of Sri Lanka to see any more sunrises anymore. Northern and Eastern parts of Sri Lanka are war affected areas and this shot was taken during a brief cease-fire period.

Besides, I'm really not very good at landscape shots, don't have many. It's very tricky when u use film coz u don't know what the result will be tiil u see the print.

I'm happy with this shot mostly coz the pentax i was using at the time had a broken exposure meter. So it wasn't easy : )
