I took this image at Girdleness near the entrance to Aberdeen Harbour in NE Scotland. It is a popular location at any time of year and even more so for sunrises. If you are lucky, you can have the local pod of Dolphins for company.
I checked the weather forecast the previous evening and it mentioned that there was to be light cloud cover and low temperatures. I drove from the opposite side of the city quite early to beat the early morning commuters. It was a bitterly cold January morning when I arrived at the location just before sunrise which gave me plenty time to find a nice composition.
The main setback when taking the image was with the many gulls flying around which left streaks in the sky due to the 2.5s exposure time.
