The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…


Well I am the first to admit that dragging myself out of bed early in the morning doesn’t usually feature too high on my list of “things I WANT to do today”… Fortunately though it does appear on my list of “things I HAVE to do today” when it comes to getting to work…

And sometimes… just occasionally…  it’s made all that bit more worthwhile when you crawl out of bed to something like this…

    Oh gosh, really? I think rolling out of bed to this is totally worth it! Wow. What color, what brilliance. Incredible B. Love it! (were you late to work? hehe)

  2. Wow! When can I visit? What an amazing sunrise. What time was this photo taken?

    • Lol.. Thanks Avital… This would have been about 7:20 which gave me about 10 mins max to run round frantically taking shots… lol…

      • Just out of curiosity, how far is this from your home?

        • Oh it’s only about 5mins… Just behind me are the two bridges seen here, that appear in some of my other shots… and connect our little island to the mainland…

  4. Gorgeous… Absolutely stunning, I love it! Definitely worth getting up for, I think. I’m useless at this kind of thing, unfortunately :p

    • What sort of thing ??… The getting up early I assume, as I sure can’t believe you mean sunrise photography with the shots you turn out… Thanks Simone… :)

  6. Very nice, love the colors of the skies

  7. Wow, that is simply beautiful! Amazing colours, and I love your composition. Love it!
    I know exactly what you mean when it comes to getting up in the morning… Apart from the times when I have to get up, there are times when I try to pull myself out of bed to get some morning photos… but at that point I have higher priorities!

    • That is exactly the same issue I have… lol… There’s always an essential extra 5 minutes sleep to squeeze in… Thanks Kai…

  8. WELL worth getting up early for! At least you had your camera with you and didn’t miss this shot :-)

    October 29, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    • Yeah that was pretty lucky, but then I had a sneaky suspicion it was gonna nice before I left home… Defo worth leaving a bit earlier for too… Thanks Michaela..

    I’m one of those annoying people who is always up with the lark, but I’ve never captured anything as beautiful as this. Absolutely stunning.

    October 29, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    • LOL… You should be getting plenty of glorious sunrises over there if you’re always up early… What else can you possibly be doing at that time of day… lol…

      October 30, 2010 at 9:58 am

  10. Those colors are stunningly beautiful, and how lucky you are to have a view like this on your way to work.

    October 29, 2010 at 4:00 pm

    • Haha… Thanks K… but trust me, it’s not THAT beautiful… Careful framing is most definitely the key here… ;)

      October 30, 2010 at 10:00 am

  11. WOW! If you keep posting photos like this you just might convince me to become a morning person! :-)

    October 29, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    • LOL.. Thanks Tracy… You’d think it might even convince me to getup earlier, but unfortunately it never works out quite as planned… Damn that comfy bed… ;)

      October 30, 2010 at 10:01 am

  12. Wow!!!!! Wow!!!!!! that’s a beautiful photograph!!! awesome! I can’t find the right words to pout together in a sentence to describe it…. Awesome!

    October 29, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    • Thanks so much Michael… I’m guessing you quite like the shot then… lol.. Thanks again… :)

      October 30, 2010 at 10:02 am

  13. Gorgeous! There’s nothing like morning light.
    I am up before sunrise everyday thanks to two 5:30 risers (UGH!) but so rarely have the freedom to hop in a car and go…

    October 31, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    • You’re right there… It’s just a real shame it’s all too brief though… Not sure I’d fancy being up at 5:30 every day though.. lol.. Thanks KD… :)

      October 31, 2010 at 11:21 pm

  14. What a bloody marvellous sunrise. I remembering doing this sort of thing only to get really weak suns and feeling knackered afterwards. Hence why I moved to the warmth of indoor pics as soon as possible!

    • Well I have to confess I can never manage to get up specifically to capture a sunrise, but when it happens on the way to work it’s a bit of a bonus… Cheers Brian…

  15. There is something great about a sunrise when it rewards you like this. It almost makes you want to do it the next day. Almost.

    Great shot.

    Beautiful, Where is this?

    January 24, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    • Thanks so much. It’s the Isle of Sheppey on the north Kent coast. :)
