    Yes folks, its been another one of those days. Yesterday, in a fit of entusiasm, I decided to drive to the beach this morning to photograph the sunrise. Thus decided I duely awoke at 4.30am for the hours drive to the beach. Unfortunatley I was rather full of the christmas cheer yesterday so sligtly hungover. Not a good start.

    Got worse once I hit black ice on the way. Nearly came off the road a few times, but blind luck and ignorance kept me going. Of course there wouldn't have been nearly as much black ice if I hadn't got lost twice.

    Arrived at the beach at 5.30 to discover that the sun doesn't start coming up till about 6.30/7 in the winter. *£&@!"!@@@!XXXX - or words to that effect. Passed a very cold hour by taking pictures of the moon.


    Eventually the sun came up but I then discovered that my beach faces north, so no chance of seeing the sunrise anyway.

    However still managed to get some very pretty pictures and was feeling like it was all worthwhile. Then noticed that the camera had been set on manual focus and half the pics were, to put it nicely, not very sharp. *£&@!"!@@@!XXXX - or words to that effect.

    Took a few more pics and decided to abandon ship. Survived the ice on the way back home and have sorted through the miriad of OOF picutres.

    I am starting to prefer pictures of sunrises/sunscts where one does not get ovewhelmed by colors. I like the graduating tones better, plus one does not end up with only a silhouet of the foreground. Good picture.
