Tall Ships at Dawn




Only a few souls about, finishing up the night watch. Waiting for the sunrise.





The moment I have been waiting for:)



So lovely and quiet. Here is a container ship slowly entering the harbour.



As it got brighter, more people started appearing. This boardwalk is a great place to walk and run. That is The Bounty behind them.





I went to move my car and loved the light from the east flooding this facade.









Me, with my back to the water getting a self portrait in a window as I waited for the sunrise.

These are beautiful shots! It was definitely worth your getting up so early. They are a perfect progression from the stillness of the early morning to the bustle of post-sunrise. Wonderful!

Gorgeous photographs, Shelagh! The lighting is incredible and your composition is spot on. You know, these photographs would make excellent cards or framed prints. Have they inspired you to paint these scenes in your own painterly style? Also, I'm not sure if you are from Lunenberg or near there but have you heard of a landscape painter named Cluny Maher? He's the father of a good friend of mine. He used to have a gallery in Lunenberg.
