Maraetai Dawn

Just got back from a sunrise shoot at Maraetai beach. Thick cloud meant no spectacular sunrise but I quite like the mood here. The pre-dawn light produced a cool blue tone which I decided to leave in rather than try and correct with white balance.

    The sea looks almost unreal it's so smooth, I like this stunning composition and tones. I love this location and coastline, and used to travel this daily on the way to or from work. Nice work.
