Saltburn Sunrise ...

By sut68      
I know it's safe to post this one as no-one on the 'mini-meet' has this in their bag.

This was taken this morning with the brief light we got for sunrise at Saltburn-on-Sea. Taken just as the sun was rising at about 5.15 am. A big thanks to 'her indoors' for the loan of her Lee 2.5 Hard Grad for this one Smile x

Enjoy the rest of your weekends folks, catch up with you soon ... just ordering a Chinese meal for tonight Smile

Paul

PS: Too minimal ... or just enough???

None at all Cole ... tbh, sunrise and sunsets are fine for the Cokins anyway ... just don't overgrad. Fran was borrowing one of my lenses so she use them, hers look great!!!

Thanks too Sharon & Betty Smile

But she isn't using 40D?

Oh, for your question: it is the simplicity that I like.

That's right Cole she isn't, even so, my sunrise shots yesterday morning at Whitby [using my Cokins] are great too, I think any purple casts can be masked at those times, due to the hues you get around dawn & dusk. I WILL be investing in some Lee's in the near future I think.

Cheers guys, was one of those mornings where we very nearly just went back to sleep ... but I suppose my tenacity and doggedness pulled us through ... glad we made the effort too Mark Smile

Cheers Tony. No grad line at all, though I do see what you mean ... so you're not quite dippy yet Wink It's just a darkening towards the horizon. I took a few with both hard and soft grads and it's there on them all!!!

Bang on the money, I'd say. Lovely image.

'Twas good to meet you and Fran again this weekend. I was on Saltburn beach with the family about 5 hours after you took this shot this morning. Suffice to say, it didn't look quite the same by then!

Cheers,

Thanks guys & gals, hope you've all had a weekend as good as mine, very tiring but well worth it!!!

Yes Alley, the HiVi 'cagoule' got an outing ... I'll see you at Spurn Point Wink

Nearly did lie in Ange, we got up and reset the alarm for 5.30 but decided to 'go-for-it' anyway and bagged a couple of nice subtle sunrise shots Smile Smile

Cheers all,

Superb shot Paul. Quite like the inclusion of the person on the pier. Gives an idea of scale and in a weird way gives some sense of authenticity to the image.

... good point. Okay I'll rephrase:

Saved me having to set up the tripod, activate the 10 second self timer and then belting down the pier to the right spot, before rushing back to do it all again from a different angle Tongue

Very nice Paul, I love the way the strong colour from the sun fades out to the blue tones from the clouds. I think there is enough in the shot as the pier and colour balance out the shot well

Gutted I'm away for the Spurn Point meet (don't let the missus hear me say that though! lol). I'm dying to do some coastal stuff at some point
