Watching the sunrise over the sea

As when the golden sun gilts the morn,
And having gilt the ocean with it's beams,
Gallops the zodiac in it's glistening coach,
And over looks the highest peering hills.
 William ShakespeareTitus Andronicus


I love watching the sunrise and sunset and we had some amazing red skies last week.  I find it such a fantastic way to start the day!



The colours change so rapidly from blood red to orange to pink and purple and then blue and no one sunrise is ever the same. It makes me feel so alive!

A local fisherman already at work

At 7.30 in the morning there were still few people around, two men quickly got out of their cars and took photographs. Another woman was sitting on one of the benches watching the sun and  after it had risen she went on her way, we smiled at each other, although we were too far away to talk.



I carried on my journey into town, but the colour of the sky was still continually changing.


I had to stop again to take more photographs to capture those fantastic views and colours.


The frost on the roofs of the beach huts reminded me that it was actually quite cold and a coffee would be welcome!

  3. Such beautiful photos. There is something so comforting watching the sun rise; I think its something to do with the knowledge that no matter how horrible the day was before, here before you is a brand new untouched day x

  14. These colors are sensational. How wonderful for you to be so close to the sea and witness such grandeur. I go to bed late (always close to 1 am) so I rarely see the sun rise, the sunset yes, but we have too many trees around us. Your photos leave me speechless by their beauty.

  15. Thank you for these visions of a truly glorious sunrise. The third photo is my particular favorite; also the one capturing the textures of the sand, pebbles, and water...

  17. I very rarely get the chance to see the sun rise but one of the few times I did was a couple of years ago and I was high up in the sky on a return flight to England and you're right the colours change at an amazing speed, you look away for one second and you've missed it. I think you captured the magic of the moment very well.

  19. Meine liebe, kleine Meerjungfrau,

    was hast du uns ein schönes Geschenk mit diesen fantastischen Fotos gemacht. Wunderschön!Bezaubernd! Und so schön passend zum heutigen 6. Dezember, dem Nikolaustag, denn der heilige Nikolaus war ein Seemann. In dem Pavillon würde ich an einem solchen Morgen auch gerne mit dir sitzen, bei einer guten Tasse Tee und dieses Wunder genießen und innehalten.
    Außerdem sollten wir mal an dieser Stelle allen Seeleuten danken, die bei Wind und Wetter auslaufen um uns die Schätze des Meeres an Land holen. Heute ist der Tag ihres Schutzpatrons!
    Ich liebe deine Bilder und freue mich jedes Mal, wenn du wieder gepostet hast.

    Einen schönen Nikolaustag und alles Liebe wünscht dir die Babsi

  27. Your photos are just wonderful. We are always out on the beach for sunrise, but it is off to the east as we walk on the beach and nothing spectacular like yours.

  30. Beautiful pictures. HOw I wish I lived next to the water!! You are lucky. I think to be able to take a walk like this in the morning really sets the pace for a great day!!

  31. Just divine. When we travel, we make a point of seeing at least one sunset whilst sitting at a cafe or by the water or in a park, rather than continuing to walk to the next destination etc. I also try to see a sunrise when we travel, even if it's just from the hotel room. Such beautiful moments, although I find myself looking at different things now that my eyes get sore from bright light exposure. Still my experiences of them are beautiful and precious. (ps we also love NYC and London)
