A great masterpiece.

Aha ha!
Kikiki kakaka kauana!
Kei waniwania taku tara.
Kei tarawahia, kei te rua i te kerokero!

He pounga rahui te uria ka rarapa;
Ketekete kau ana to peru kairiri
Mau au e koro e -----

Hi! Ha!
Ka wehi au ka matakana,
Kowhai te tangata kia rere ure?
Tirohanga nga rua rerarera
Nga rua kuri kakanui i raro!

Aha ha!
Ka Mate! Ka Mate!
Ka ora! Ka ora!
Tenei te tangata puhuruhuru
Nana nei i tiki mai whakawhiti te ra!
Hupane kaupane!
Hupane kaupane
Whiti te ra!

Excellent capture of this early morning light!
Take care and have a great day!

Hi Dawn,
You're chicken, this morning was an ideal time to get up early and capture a .....hang on, was there a sunrise up your way?
I'm just getting some feeling back in my hands, a tad cool in this neck of the woods.

Hy Dawn
Well captured sunrise - great color and claarity. I did a WS to move the horizon line out of center. Hope you like it.

Great composition Dawn,l love the light reflecting on the water and the bush in the foreground.The sky is not to bad either.

Hi Dawnie!

A very dramatic Sunrise photo! The colours resemble that of a volcano! The vivid yellow/orange in contrast with the black ash! I would have called it "Black Dawn!" Sounds catchy!
