I went out this morning at the crack of dawn and captured this:
Sunrise at Mercer - click for larger size
The water that you can see is the Waikato River, with Mercer in the center of the image.
I knew the sun rose at 6:46am and I’d previously looked on Google maps for a few likely spots where I could see the river. But these places were not accessible when I got there (as is often the case). I was getting desperate as the minutes ticked by. But I came across this location just a few minutes before the sun came up.
It’s taken with my 17-55mm (set at 17mm). Processed with Photomatix and Photoshop. Not much done in Photoshop, mostly just some “burning” to darken some parts of the foreground.
