Yesterday I told you about my dawn photography at Hastings Marina.  Well I managed to get a couple of shots showing a pinkish sky, but for most of the time the sunrise was hidden behind clouds on the horizon.

I was just about ready to pack up, when I noticed a big patch of clear blue sky making its way towards the eastern horizon, so I waited a half hour or so until the Sun finally poked up from behind the clouds. It wasn’t pink any more, but there were some nice rays of light spreading across the sky. To add another element to the shot, I threw a rock into the water to get rings of ripples disturbing the reflection.  I’m very happy with both of these shots.
