Popped down to Easington beach tonight to try and get some startrails but the light pollution was horrendous. So instead I thought I would give wire wool spinning a try, Mick (Fellwalker1) and Bryan (BDMBeercan) introduced Me to this a few weeks ago(cheers lads), this is the first time I have tried it Myself, this shot was My third attempt and best of the night.

One from Saturday mornings sunrise, took a few shots before this one and decided to head back, so started scrambling over the rocks back to the beach and happenrd upon this little fella. Had to pop him on a rock and get a shot! Used a B+W 3.0 ND filter to smooth the sea and a 0.9 reverse ND Grad to stop the sky from blowing out.

The time just before the sun comes up when there is lots of colour in the sky but still lots of blue tones from the receding darkness.

This was a case of right place, right time. Beautiful colours in the sky as the sun sets, and a huge rainbow to top it off. Dont think I will be this lucky ever again!!

Finished work this morning at 6am, the sky was a deep fiery red when I came out so I rode My mountain bike as quick as I could and picked My camera bag up and dashed down to Wingate to see how much of this spectacular sunrise I could catch. This shot was taken as it had started to subside, it is no where near as intense as it was 20 minutes earlier.
