This was taken during the height of the revolutionary period leading up to the presidents resignation. We evacuated to the Red Sea to escape the dangerous times in Cairo.

What a great shot. The clouds appear to be crystalized. Good depth of field, great color and tonal range without loss of detail in the darker areas.

stunning sunrise with such a compelling lead in. The fg wave breaking is so effective and the overall atmosphere quite glorious. Hard to believe that this tranquil scene was at a time of such upheaval but appropriately a "new dawn"
Have a great weekend - Brian.

Beautiful sunset over the sea, but remarkable is the sky and clouds. Very good management of light. Well seen, TFS,

Congratulations for this beautiful sunset picture! The colors are very nice, the exposure well managed and the composition is attractive even if it is a 50-50 (half for the sky, half for the sea).
Be careful, I think that the horizon line tilts a little bit on the left.

fascinating the colour tints of the sky over the Red sea,with the puffy clouds and the reflection of the sun on the surface of the sea to make the image superb.
Have a good weekend,Danos

The cloud formation and light are amazing. The composition is excellent with the wave and surf in the FG, and I like the rising sun being central. Very well done.

Your journey was most certainly dangerous, but coming to this sunrise had to lift your spirits a little. God is good, just look at the sunrise he has shared with you. Excellent POV and perfect color and light management, great job Giovanni!!

Wow, it must be exciting experience to be at that time in Cairo. But much safer to be out of it. And this sunset scenery is so calm. Excellent symmetrical composition, marvelous colours. delightful these small clouds.
willperrett (7836) 2012-06-15 0:51
You did sensibly to move out of Cairo, and did well to be up at such an hour to catch this beautiful sunrise. I like the contrast between the dark waves in the foreground and the highlighted clouds above. Good work.
mjw364 (7516) 2012-06-20 3:11
Wow... a perfect sunset Giovanni - well exposed. I presume you used an ND filter? I have been to the Red Sea once - Dahab - back when the first Gulf War was beginning. Nice shot - Well done.
mvinagre (849) 2012-06-23 15:07
Very good composition with the clouds and depth.
bornav (484) 2012-07-02 3:20
This is one of the most beautiful sunset photos I've seen on TE. The perspective created by the clouds indeed make it look very scenic. The composition and lighting are perfect too!
Nasy (124) 2012-07-29 12:42
I like how the perspective in the sky makes it to be seen three-dimensional!
natural colors and well-captured,
Wish you the best,
jmdias (58163) 2013-01-27 1:17
for coincidence I have an american friend who was in cairo during that days.
very beautiful the texture of the sky. I liked the way you framed the image catching the splash of the wave in the lower part. TFS this beautiful moment of nature.
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2013-07-10 12:49
