This is one of my rare sunrise shots because i never wake up mornings before 7 or 8 am if i have to but in this case due to my jet lag(8 hrs time differences)I woke up everyday around 4.45 am:)and has chance to walk on the beach and take some sunrise photos.
I took this photo with my 3.2mp compact camera at Arpacbahsis Resort Condos in Mersin,Turkey during my 3,5 weeks vacation.
Picture cropped,leveled and framed and somehow lost some quality.I hope some of you like this:)

I bet this was really spectacular before you had to downsize it for TN! Fabulous capture with lovely sunrays.

That's a lovely shot! I liked it a lot...I think you should wake up early for sharing such beautiful sunrise shots with us:)

Very nice shot, CT
Excellent composition, great exposure, beautiful colour.

Hello CT!
Nice to see you back my friend;).Wonderful capture.Lighting,POV,DOF and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)

Wonderfull atmosphere in this photo CT, I really like the various shades of colour in this photo. The dark line along the bottom acts like a placeholder for the clouds to "sit" on. The rays of sunshine of course are splendid in this photo. Thanks for getting up so early, I seems to miss this time of day usually ;-) If you lost some quality in processing the image I can only imagine how the original must look like. Great photo!

stunning shot of the sunrise. why do people try to avoid this time of day when you can have scenes like this?
lovely photo, well cropped. you didn't mention if you sharpened it. When you resize a picture, you often loose a little detail, and sharpening is (Unsharp mask) one way of regaining some of that lost detail - just don't over do it...

Hi Chris, well it was worth getting up early this day, wesn't it? Stunning colours and I love the look of the rays of the sun through the clouds. Good job!

CT, my friend...
I guess this is what they call "clouds with golden linings"... Beautiful! The sunray are actually visible, quite amazing... Good composition, colours all over and nice details

Bu nedir böyle, inanılmaz bir manzara! Yağlıboya tablo gibi ya da gerçek olamayacak kadar güzel, çok güzel!
