I woke several times in the early hours of this morning and at about 04:00 hrs i decided i was awake and not at work so today would be a good day to get up and try a rare sunrise shot.The last time i tried thi must have been a couple of years ago.
As i was getting up i must have disturbed my wife , who quickly decided to join me, so we both got up and sorted out, quick coffee before loading the car for a short drive to Viking Bay Broadstairs.
When we arrived it quickly became apparent that there was a lot of cloud and we were going to be extremely lucky to get a good sunrise. With that in mind i decided i was going for a longish exposure to blur the incoming waves. I Found a composition i liked and set about taking images and trying to time it right with the waves on the retreat to get the white trails as it retreats back.
The above image was at ISO 100 F/22 for 13 seconds. I tweaked the white balance to get a softer feel to the image.
I took a few images at this spot and processed them all slightly different to see what a difference processing makes to a image and converted one to black and white. Not the best sunrise but still a nice thing to do, just not to often !
Had a great morning and even met a few familiar names i have seen in various local facebook groups. Nice to finally meet and put some faces to names.
Here is to the next sunrise attemot in two years time!!
