Another shot taken at the same location in Bojoe from a different point of view, the spot I previously scouted the day before. Yes, just another sunrise and routine! Maybe one of the most photographed thing in the world when the sun performs a beautiful show playing with heavy grey clouds around and with every being on earth, remembering us the power and the beauty of nature after the darkest night before.
For me the first few moments I find right when my whole attention remained with this magical moment as the sun breaks for a new day and new beginning, is a very special time. So full of energy and life that have filled me when the sweet light creates the most dimensions to the seascape and skyscape.
Frankly speaking, it is often hard to get up at 4am, hurriedly get dressed, grab the equipment and drive to the location but chasing the light has become my routine and a way of life in any of my shooting locations. At the end of the day, I love the feeling of having seized the golden opportunity and then going out for breakfast. It seems like all is right in the world when you sip some nice warm Java coffee with a sense of accomplishment so early in the day. I hope that this shot can transmit at least a part of the wonderful feeling that I experienced.
Enjoy your time...

Here is another "killer" sky from you. Thanks for your generous touch to the colors, making us dream. I wish i was in that little sail :)
williewhistler (15571) 2013-05-20 1:34
Hello Abmdsudi , the dramatic sky is enhanced by the saturated colours in a perfect composition for the occasion,the little boat sailing into the oncoming storm adds even more interest and drama.
Perfect planning and timing,a really outstanding photograph of Natures beauty, very well done.
Best regards Les.

Un coup de maître une fois encore. Moment de grâce et de beauté à travers cette magnifique composition.
J'admire, je déguste, j'apprécie, je loue !

a wonderful and dramatic sky, magnified by an original and well thought out composition.The small sailboats cutting through water almost disappear in front of this sight.The intense and violent colours well convey the pathos of the scene.
cargus (9598) 2013-05-20 1:49
A sunrise with beautiful colors, well played, clarity and contrast, well done picture.!

unbelievable what amazing spectacles can nature create.It´s definitely not just another sunrise shot,for me one of the most beautiful ever seen!
The combination of so amazing and almost touching the sea cloud formations,the warm colors of rising sun so beautifully contrasting to the blue sky-everything seems to be perfect.
It´s a moment we wish it could last much longer.
carlo62 (38773) 2013-05-20 2:15
colori fantastici, le nuvole hanno deviato i bellissimi raggi creando un'immagine spettacolare, che tu, hai abilmente fotografato.
Gigidusud (18065) 2013-05-20 2:22
Wow! Simply fantastic! Love it!
rbassin (19968) 2013-05-20 2:42
la nature fait le spectacle.
Une très belle prise de vue, la présence du voilier contraste avec la puissance des éléments.
BennyV (14401) 2013-05-20 3:19
Although saturation and noise level near the top of the shot are pushing towards the limit...what would have been just a (really good) nature shot becomes a lot more than that by the inclusion that little blue triangle in the corner. Superb!!
holmertz (45297) 2013-05-20 3:27
Again you have "painted" an incredible sky. These colours and shapes are way beyond anything I have seen on the latitudes where I live. You have handled the light superbly to capture the lightest and darkest area perfectly.
JFS (32459) 2013-05-20 3:28
This shot is a jewel a gift for our eyes, thanbks for such a fascinating and good work
cornejo (35905) 2013-05-20 3:46
Hello abmdsudi, wonderful view of this beautiful sunrise is this interesting place, very well composed and captured with a good frame, in this great and beautiful photography. A wonderful image of a lovely time, with good sharpness, depth and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this lovely work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-05-20 4:13
altra splendida immagine nella quale il cielo è il protagonista assoluto con sprazzi di azzurro e colori infuocati.
Una splendida composizione che solo la bellezza del paesaggio indonesiano ti poteva permettere per i forti contrasti che la natura ha in questi luoghi.
Ottima la gestione della luce.
Ciao e buona giornata
CPD66 (954) 2013-05-20 4:44
stunning shot, beautiful colours a great shot.
worth every point awarded
SnapRJW (31627) 2013-05-20 5:37
Hello Ambdsudi - Being rewarded with a shot like this is a strong recommendation for any aspiring landscape photographer to go to bed early and rise before the sun. The feelings that one experience being witness to such a sight must be totally mind-blowing and you have captured a majestic moment in time. Beautiful colour and superb detail. TFS this and letting us share a little of your experience. Warm regards Rosemary
Fis2 (90111) 2013-05-20 5:52
Wonderful colours and light.
Very impressive picture!
Noel_Byrne (27440) 2013-05-20 5:55
I dont like to leave short comments, but could easily just say WOW!!! to this and that would sum up my thoughts perfectly. This is an incredible shot of this most beautiful sky. It is like a fantastically detailed painting, and its colours are so rich and stunningly attractive. Really a wonderful image, and as ever I say thanks for sharing your talents and art.
All the best from Ireland

parvatibb (1387) 2013-05-20 9:54
just WOW! I do not believe I ever come close to a sunrise seen as beautiful as like this.
Maybe one day I will have the chance
josepmarin (57947) 2013-05-20 10:42
you did it again! This new version of your previous spot is amazing.
The beauty of the stormy clouds, its contrast with the blue sky and with the golden-orange tones, the silver sea, the rain curtains, and the small fishing boat, build a composition with a superb light and a great chromatic power.
A wonderful shot.
Graal (100124) 2013-05-20 10:56
another the same place but more wide view. Amazing colorful image, fine saturated and finally effect. It's like painted. May be on wallpaper.
Have a nice evening.
jemaflor (89405) 2013-05-20 11:17
Wonderfull capture and presentation, Superb golden sky well managed perfect with the small details with sailboat, tfs.
ourania (36472) 2013-05-20 12:28
what a magnificent and awesome sight! The clouds and the colours have totally taken over your frame -and the world, it seems:) You have given us a great and rare opportunity to watch this intricate and fascinating play of light, shadows, colours, patterns and volumes in the sky. The water and the boats provide a striking contrast of calmness. I absolutely love the richness of the colours, the suggestiveness of the light and the immense depth of this image. Your note is marvellous too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
eldancer1 (32113) 2013-05-20 13:02
Wow! Excellent capture! With this kind of shot I'd get up very early in the morning and after achieving my goals I would walking on cloud 9! I just can't get over how beautiful this scene is! The colors are outstanding and the lighting is terrific. The clouds looks transparent. You must enter this in a National Geographic Contest. I think you've set yourself another standards. Very well done, tfs.
Urs (14082) 2013-05-20 21:13
That is one of those spectacular sunrise which can put the sky on fire. You were lucky that there was this huge cumulus cloud, so you could avoid the mandatory flares. Bold colours and high sharpness, not to be forgotten the sail at the right, it helps to give dimension. Well done
mkamionka (32521) 2013-05-21 1:50
very impressive picture. It looks more like an impressionist painting than a photograph.
Fantastic colors. I like the blue part of the sky which contrasts nicely with the yellowish clouds.
kato (11630) 2013-05-21 1:57
You're capturing well this scene by a good timing and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the dramatic sunrise nature changing from dark to bright. Especially, it's delightful for the contrast between clouds dyed to orange color and blue sky. And, the boad with silhouette sailing on the sea draws out an additional good effect in this image.
marabu61 (9503) 2013-05-21 7:59
Well I think the result you got in this wonderful composition justifies entierly your getting up so early.
This is simply beautiful. The sky on fire with gorgeous golden and blue tones, superb clouds and the lonely sailing boat to add a touch of mystique, again simply beautiful.
have a good day
yquem46 (38750) 2013-05-21 8:11
No big surprise that I find new good shots in your gallery posted while away for a couple of days to my birth place in Brittany
this one is simply sumptuous
bravo, best regards
Cricri (111485) 2013-05-21 10:53
C'est comme une explosion des lumières poussant les nuages, le coin bleu du ciel donne une scène supplémentaire et des reflets magnifiques, très belle composition et réalisation
rychem (28139) 2013-05-21 10:59
Wow! Dramatic sky, simply splendid photo
nikkitta (16836) 2013-05-21 15:25
for sure one of your best captures and also one of the better seen in TE
This is, as you said, a magical and perfect capture of the sunrise with the splashing colors at the sea and reflects at the sea
And the add of the ship add one more points, if posible at the composition
Greetings, congrats and TFS
Keep getting uo so early to take this beautiful sunrises
CLODO (32204) 2013-05-22 2:20
incredible nature scene with this superb colors in the cloudy sky. I also appreciate the tiny sail boat at right, giving the scale of the scenery.
Ecureuil (530) 2013-05-22 2:49
Bonjour mon cher ami,
de l'or au bleu intense, toutes les couleurs de la nature dans un même ciel, dans un même cadre. L'eau sous sa forme nuage et liquide.
Une belle fresque très décorative et esthétique.
Un post processing efficace mais un peu visible.
delpeoples (55094) 2013-05-22 3:36
Oh wow! What a shot. The golden light and the deep blue sky make stunning companions. Those rays of light, the soaring clouds dwarf that tiny little boat on the right of the frame. It makes us realise how small and insignificant we are.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening
rogerl (1544) 2013-05-23 4:34
Abmdsudi, this is another lovely sunrise shot. The colors obviously are fantastic and you've done a wonderful job with the detail and the light. Besides the boat, looking all alone on the ocean, I particularly like the brightly-lit tiny cloud towards the upper right - nice clear, white light on that cloud.
adidas5nb (5685) 2013-05-23 4:39
just amazing.like the riot of colors and the sharpness and the layers of clouds.beautiful mood.the boat enhances the pic manifolds.
claudeD (35519) 2013-05-24 9:24
amazing sunrise shot showing this wonderful sky sky with excellent colors. Perfect light managment. Like the view very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
marina7 (8055) 2013-05-24 10:52
just stunning! So much fire in the sky to welcome a new day. Love the huge clouds almost touching the horizon. And that tiny sail basking in this gorgeous light.
Didi (59114) 2013-05-26 11:58
Magnificient colours of the sky; it's an over PP but it"s well done
flatwin (2181) 2013-05-27 3:02
des couleurs bronze de toutes beauté pour ce coucher de soleil
kiks (11785) 2013-05-28 13:19
WOW,, this are hudge clouds!! and what a saturation of colors. Very impressive. I don't know if it is because of the compression but at some parts de noise is very visible. Still amazing moment that you sghare with us. Thanks
ikeharel (63019) 2014-08-17 6:11
This is an amazing composition, Abmdsudi.
The well saturated golden tones with a big part in blue, made the sky-scene so superior.
The heavy clouds above the horizon show nature great forces on weather, yet with the charm of a beautiful photo.
Chees, and have a nice new week.
Curious_Eye (1320) 2015-03-18 22:54
Truly, the sky and the sea on fire...! A spectacular capture of the night giving way to a new day. The boat looks so tiny here against the roaring clouds. The diagonal framing accentuates the powerful, soul-stirring moment. A series of morning shots like this one, a hearty breakfast and a cup of good coffee - indeed, a perfect way to greet a new day. Thank you for sharing this amazing view.
