Hello to you all,
This was captured this morning at the Tamaki drive in Auckland seafront with the winter sunrise over the Waitemata harbour! the island on the left is Rangitoto, our youngest volcano among the other 49!
After hit by two storm in a week, we really looking forward for a better weather to come!
This beautiful sunrise only lasted for about an hour and is covered with thick gray clouds again with showers!
Hope you can enjoy it and thanks for viewing
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

un magnifique lever de soleil avec juste ces nuages qu'il faut dans le ciel pour y déposer des flammes bien colorées .
Des couleurs qui se prolongent en surface, la rendant dorée.
L'horizon penche un rien sur la gauche.

A very serene view of the rising sun nicely framed by the foreground trees. A beautiful blend of blue and gold tones.

Now, this is different from the previous one. Lovely dawn colors with the clouds playing wonderful games in the sky

Beautiful sunset, I like the picture very much. Good colors, nice pov and fantastic atmosphere.....also great sharpness, well composed and a wonderful feeling of depth !
wishlist (4133) 2008-08-02 13:24
the natural frame of the branches on top emphasize even more the beauty of this picture and the great atmosphere you managed to bring in. The place seems to be sorrounded by silence and tranquillity, the colours and reflections are simply beautiful and makes the compo very pleasant to look at. Excellent work indeed!
Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing it.
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2008-08-02 15:05
The trees on top are a very good compositional element and frame very well the spectacular sunrise. The sky colours from the yellow to the blue are superb and the colours are magnificent. The only minor flaw is the tilted horizon.
MarianneS (15338) 2008-08-03 0:11
Lovely sunrise, with sweet colours. I like the way you used vegetation as a natural frame with a superb contrast.
Miha2ou7 (5048) 2008-08-03 2:46
Oh, very very romantic. Composed with excellence, the perfect proportions between the branches and the subject. The photo could have been a bit empty, or too saturated with the branches. Beautiful colors and lighting. Fine stuff.
miumiu (6045) 2008-08-03 4:12
Wonderful, impressive and point of view is excellent!
l like it!
paura (47166) 2008-08-03 6:45

gunbud (34066) 2008-08-03 7:19
Excellent wide view across this lovely bay to the lovely yellow orb just coming up over the horizon of blue and complimentary golden yellow sky.
The trees in the foreground brings the distant sky and hill together in this fine coastal image.
kevinos (7403) 2008-08-03 8:36
The strong shapes of the foreground trees give this moody sunset and magical quality, Tony. Regards kevin
josepmarin (57831) 2008-08-03 10:52
A wonderful sunrise, with a great luminosity and a few beautiful tones. The silhouettes of the branches hanging in foreground they increase the beauty of your composition.
There is a very slight tilt in the horizon, but the photo is very beautiful and attractive at sight.
Great shot, my friend.
Graal (98351) 2008-08-03 11:53

skippy007 (12510) 2008-08-04 5:37

cfreire (11741) 2008-08-04 6:44
Sorry, I'm late in visiting this splendid sunrise capture. The lights and contrasts are lovely. You managed well with the framing that placing some part of this tree in up side. It's very attractive. Good job, friend! Best regards, Consuelo

Que espetáculo da natureza é o amanhecer... com suas promessas...
Lindíssima foto, cores e composição excelentes.
axiotea (21649) 2008-08-04 9:15
a pleasant sunset atmosphere with beautiful luminosity giving lovely color tones. It was a good idea to include the silhouetted branches adding depth and more contrast to the image.
Jakab (3867) 2008-08-04 14:53
"and a new day now begins" - sung in the famous musical. I like the golden bridge drawn by the sun and the silhouettes remaining from the night.
Best whishes and persistence in the stormy winter!
ElAprendiz (30) 2008-08-04 17:41
Wow! my friend, that beautiful ....
The soft shades of orange and penetrating into the sky, make my eyes marveled landscape.
The branches loose at the top, decorate very well-making and tranquillity of the water is very relaxing.
As always my friend, you have a country that love every day and inviting know ... It would be nice to spend a honeymoon there, with the loved one.
