Early morning and we were out to find a one in a million sunrise.
By the time we got to the lookout it was occupied by other photographers from the convention and frankly there was nothing much happening anyway. I wasn't confident.
The wind was from the north and produced faint wind lanes in the ocean as well as long wispy trails of high cloud. Eventually, for a short time only, the clouds were illuminated with a pink glow from the rising sun. But left to its own devices and plonked on a tripod my camera created a completely false impression. The image it produced was rich blue with contrasting bright pink clouds – it didn't feel like that at all. The picture was way too pretty for the cold dark morning I was experiencing.
You might accuse me of going a bit far the other way, but my computer helped me make an image that expresses the way I truly saw that sunrise.
