Well, that's the first dawn trek of 2013 in the bag - Happy new Year everyone

After a rather respectable 6am rise, I had decided to visit the Wirral and the Dee estuary to catch sunrise there. A low cloud bank to the South and East put paid to an early sunrise but there was some early pre-dawn colour and a nice bit of light a little later on

The wispy cloud about also diffused it somewhat to begin with and gave a lovely soft sheen to the light early on. If you look very carefully you can see a little feathered friend [Plover?] coming to pose for me on the prow of the boat.

I RESPECTFULLY ASK YOU NOT TO COMMENT ON MY SHOT ASKING ME TO LOOK AT YOURS. I WON'T COME ON TO YOUR SHOT AND ASK THE SAME SO PLEASE REFRAIN FROM THIS!!!
