Cesar Perez Ortega~~~~Thank you my friend Cesar, your visit and comments I value deeply!

Gabor Retei~~~~Hope all is well with you Gabe...I'll be stopping by soon!

Nikonista~~~It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance Jeff, I enjoyed the company of yourself and good ladywife!..You are quite right about getting up for dawn shots..I reckon it would need to be around 0300 hrs to be safe!

manfrezo~~~~Your numerous visits and great comments are much appreciated!

Neil Grimwood---Eyup Neil ;>) I'm getting miles behind with my mail..thanks for your precious comment and BD!

geomanncer~~~~~I'm definitely a marmalade on toast fan too!

mabel65-----I love the early morning light Marlene...Just now, it breaks around 0400 and sunrises around 0445hrs

J-mckinna~~~~A typical East Coast sun-up Jim..I love em!

JoelleGiannoni----At last Joelle I return your lovely compliment and thank you most graciously for the Y* ;)

Puna~~~~Greetings Anand ;>)..Most dawns are quite dramatic as the sun appears in the eastern horizon! Almost always accompanied with a little cloud off the sea!

poelarse~~~~I was an early bird for sure Per ;>) I should do it more often, however, the thought of that perishingly cold breeze off the North sea puts me off! As for processing, sure! I lightened up the deliberately under exposed foreground to enhance that golden glow! Almost all my photos receive a little treatment in PS, a process that I thoroughly enjoy!

stacy metcalf----Many thanks for your fulsome comments Stacy...The local farmers grow cereal crops, along with rape-seed, linseed and grass right down to the cliff edge! often creating a patchwork quilt of gorgeous contrasting colour that can be seen for miles! The cloud formation was particularly good and the sunrise just went on and on! The rock you mention is in fact what remains of a promontory which has been eroded by the unending force from the ocean! This is a common occurrence along the eastern seaboard! The static caravans are really quite tasteful in their design..This being a requirement under local planning laws!

Denise Gregory~~~~Good to see you Denise, thanks for your nice compliment!

Paula K~~~~Hmmm! I love marmalade mornings Paula ;>)

۞-۞ S T O N A ۞-۞, ~~~~Always a pleasure to receive your comments Natalia----I'm glad you stopped by!

stett3~~~Warm greetings Michael, thank you so much for your excellent comment!

marcel_pics----I'm pleased that you like this photo, thank you!

brian01~~~~~The sun only rises from the ocean at this position for a brief few days during mid spring..As the summer draws closer, the sun rises from a much more northerly point thus missing the capture of the promontory you see here! Thanks so much Brian for your affirmation. The Y* is gratefully received!

Sarah O-----Hi Sarah ;>)....This was a wonderful moment to witness..I never tire of sunsets..possibly my favourite natural phenomena! I'm delighted you enjoyed this one!

ButsYV~~~~~Warm greetings Yuri_ ;>) Thank you so much for your nice compliment.
