I woked up at 3:45am this morning for a shooting! Sunrise at Bronte Beach, a small Eastern suberb of Sydney. To my surprise, there are already a few early risers enjoying morning swim! The weather was perfect for a spring day. I try to render the light and colours as close to what I saw. I'm pretty pleased with the result. I hope you like it.
Thank you for viewing, appreciate all comments and suggestions.

Great shot! I like the semi circle of rocks in the water and the detail of the foreground ones. The colours are great too.

A lovely shot. There is a nice calming effect to this scene. It definately looks a lot warmer than it is here at the moment. LOL.

Hello Simon, like the depth value of your scene using the stones...the sky colours reflected is a strong point in your composition. Nice exposure.

Thank you so much for viewing and very generous comments.
On hindsight, I also come to realize that it would have been great learning if I had remembered to take some shots with a polarizer filter to reduce the glares.
