pinkdaisy, Thank you for your visit and your kind remarks - both very much appreciated! I'm glad you like these sunrises.

All the best from North Carolina, USA ~

Fantastic sunrise photo.

Does your camera have a lens cap and not a built in lens cover? Because if you are able to put on a lens cap, you are also able to put on a Neutral Density and Polarizer filter. The ND filter is really good for taking long exposures when there's too much light and the circular polarizer does a great job at removing reflections (if you want it to) and it also helps the ND filter. I have only used them on my Nikon D70, but I hope someday soon I can be rid of the trees (and actually be able to see a sunset/sunrise) and try them out on my Canon, which can fit any 52mm filter.

Have a great day up in NC!

Liam, Yep - At times I use a 2-stop circular polarizer and a 4-stop ND ... sometimes I even stack those two together. The prescribed way to use lens filters with my camera is in combination with an adapter tube. Problem with the adapter is I have to increase the focal length significantly to prevent vignetting caused by the tube. A couple months ago I fashioned a device to eliminate the adapter tube and I now have the full scale of focal length to work with when using my filters. (YAY!)

Believe me, I really like my lens filters! This one and this one and this one and this one are a few of my favorites with both filters in place.

Looks like you've been getting some great sky conditions of late. Our skies have actually been too clear (pretend I didn't say that). Like

Cheers, Randy.

Hahaha, Randy, exactly - better be careful what we wish for!

deep21 and ocminter,

Thanks to you both for the comments! I just revisited this spot at daybreak this morning. No interesting clouds this time around but I'm hopeful for at least one keeper :)
