After Taking the series of nocturnal photo, We went to bed listening to the sound of the sea through our opened window and around 4am I woke up when some bird start singing around. I opened my eyes and saw It was the perfect time to go out, install my camera on a tripod and offer my body to the morning mosquitoes that were hunting for some fresh blood.
Here is one of the sunrise photo I have taken that morning. I was lucky enough to have a large boat crossing the horizon during that time. I know that the horizon is almost centered but I didn't want to lose this sky, neither the lines on the water.
Here is the link for a larger view of it
Have a great day.

At first i thought 'workshop', rule of thirds and all that stuff, then i read the note....it is a very nice photo, awesome to be able to wake up to something like that.
Awesome colours in the sky, maybe that bird was meant to wake you up. i still think there is too much in the foreground

Well done tho

Hi Luc,
Great Sunrise picture. Well captured and beautifully composed.
Well done.


Hi Luc.
Beautiful sunrise, the sky is being burned.
Wonderful shape of the clouds, congratulations.
Thanks for sharing.


My friend...Super sundown! What a great mood in your sky here...The colours are fantastic and that loneely ship at the horizon was an extra bouns to this all.
Compliments Luc! TFS
I am unp acking something that came 3 mins ago by ''postes des escargots'' in English.. snailmail!?!
(will call you) and
PS 2;
Thanks for your reaction on my photo:
safe walk with Daddy

Sunrises...always a good subject!


what a view!!
excellent colours and a great composition.

Beautiful sunrise with good colours ...

well done ..
thanks .

deep colors, very captivating. In every photograph, you just need to know the rules but learn how to break them. A classic here. Have you tried putting more of the sky instead? this is already good Luc.

Hello Luc, beautiful sunrise, what a start for a day! Great colors, I can understand you did not want to crop anything out of it.


perfect colors, light and compo!
love it!
well done!

Bonjour Luc

The sky is on fire! Marvellous rouge colour, in this outstanding sunset, with attractive horizontal layering. Beau travail!

Quand les éléments se positionnent correctement, il ne faut pas rater sa chance! Les levers et couchers de soleil sont imprévisibles: celui-là était le gros lot! Belle réussite du point de vue de la lumière et de la couleur. Je suis cependant d'avis contraire au sujet de la composition; l'intérêt de cette image est dans le ciel... Ceci dit, une très belle image!

Hi Luc,

Nicely captured, beautiful view.
A slight crop from bottom will reduce the centered horizon.


WOW!!!!! This is stuuning!!! I'm sure it was a unique experience watching this beautiful sunrise "live". I AM impressed looking just the photo! :))
Fantastic colour tones and contrast!
Very very well done and TFS :)

Hi Luc!

wow what a shot! I just love all the red nuances, and the boat is everything there!!!

excellent, congrats!

That rocks Luc! It was worth it the human sacrafice. Nice positioning of the boat.


Quelle lumière rouge intense! Le contraste avec le moir si sombre la fait bien ressortir! Le bateau est un beu coup de chance bien exploité pour ajouter un petit plus! J'ai goûter aux moustique moi aussi.... M.enfin c'est eux qui m'On goûter ce weekend quand je suis aller dans les bois de mon enfance et... Et il y a encore des grenouilles! J'ai la preuve! J'ai même vu un crapeau! Et des o$?%$ de vidanges aussi que les malpropres jettent sur les bords de la route parce que trop colons pour attendre le jour que passent le camion pour ça! J'ai même une photo qui pourrais donner très mauvaise image à une entreprise qui a acheté le terrain et qui jette ses déchets de construction dessus. Les temps changent! Et l'on dirais pas pourtant à voir ce ciel ici! Bravo!

Very good moning, Luc. lol
Beautiful 'Blood'red mosquito colour.
Worth to stay up that early. (not for me)

Hi Luc,
3 layer compo
dark red dark
and a small ship on the horizon

Hi Luc

Well done Luc

Hi Luc,

Brilliant Shot! I love the colours and detail in this one. Not often you get to see a sunset like that here in the UK.
IMHO I would try to avoid a near 50/50 horizon line though.

Still an excellent capture, Well done!

Hi Luc,
Very colourful.

'I see the ship on the horizon...I have become comfortably numb!'~Pink Floyd. LOL. Good shoot!

Hi Luc, great sunrise shot, including a ship at the horizon was a great idea.. I would have cropped half of the bottom part though ;)


Excellent Luc,

When confronted with something like this throw the rules away and use your own artistic sense. Perfect as is without any cropping or adhering to the damn thirds rule. TFS,

I agree with Allaetin about the crop (at least a third of the bottom could go) but the photo is anyway gorgeous. Congrats !

thanks and stay well,

Salut Luc!
Spectaculaire lever de soleil. Le ciel était superbe ce matin là. Tu n'as pas dormi longtemps.... Cette iamge très sombre nous laisse à peine entrevoir les détails de la mer. Est-ce que tu as envisagé une version panoramique en coupant le haut et le bas de ton image?

Dont ya just hate it when those mosquitoes start biting!..they are always after me too!..

Luc, fantastic "Dawn" shot, love the vibrant colours, and your lucky the boat was there to add some more interest to the photo.

Although beautiful, its a sign of bad weather coming, being red in the morning.

Have you heard of the saying over there:... "Pink morning..sailors warning!"
"Pink night..Sailors delight"

Thanks for sharing.. was worth the bite or two or three wasnt it.. lol..


Hi luc,
A wonderful shot,
nice red
and good contrast,
and good cropping,


Wow, quelles couleurs merveilleuses.
Très beau lever du soleil.

Beautiful view and colours.

Ive tried many times to get up and take some shots of sunrise but never got the chance, well that's what you call being lazy.

Ive managed once with my bro in law, but weather was nasty, and no photos were taken.
