Fantastic shots T - the sunlight, the ice, the colors, the composition... let's say everything in these shots is perfect!

Good reflection of the sunlight and clouds. Well done!

Walter_S,

Struck a faustian trade at the age of 10 so I don't have any hope for that. Free from Mark Knopfler:

"Piper to the end" (Album "Get Lucky", the latest as of now)

When I leave this world behind me
To another i will go
If there are no pipes in heaven
I`ll be going down below


And there are no pipes at the assumed location. Still there is beauty in the world, not to mistaken for goodness though

Thanks for following my harbour threads. It's full of life

//T

I like the first one, best, the great play of blues with the nicely-exposed orange sun.

Each one documents the rapidly-changing character of a sunrise, and the opportunities and challenges those changes present a photographer. You met the challenge well, my friend.

maggo85,

Thank you for viewing and commenting. perhaps a little more sharpening. I sit in front of the PC using three different kinds of glasses. Often I choose the wrong ones

But if you say so it must be ok

The Barbarian,

A good idea, if the weather forecast is ok, could be to put the camera on a tripod and make for example 60 exposures exactly per hour; to see the changes

I can ask you. If you compare sunrise and sunset - is there a reversed sequence of colours

I don't know. The "green flash" sometimes seen in sunsets, is also seen in sunrises.

Sounds like a worthy experiment.

Nice sun set series with the large ships giving the eye something else to play with.

shoturtle,

Thank you. They used to build large ships here until the 80ies when the Koreans took over

Pretty much all large transport ships are built in Korea now adays. Only warships are built in the US down in newport news and up in maine now adays. They still build cruise ships in Europe. Blohm and Voss still build warships in hamburg. The Koreans have not taken over all ship building.

There are still shipyards in the UK at Govan on the Clyde Estuary, Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, and on the south coast. They get occasional warship orders, and the odd ferry. Two huge aircraft carriers were going to be built, but the orders seem unlikely to survive our current budget crisis. The French also build their own warships, I believe.
