Dawn was actually over my right shoulder, but the warm glow extended pretty much over the whole sky.

I had been sat waiting for the dawn for some time when an otter appeared just beyond the last boulder. Unfortunately I had already set up the camera for a long exposure and couldn't move to the camera to change the settings without scaring off the animal. He sat in the shallows eating a fish for about 3 minutes. I sat as still and quiet as possible.

I love the photographers comments, what a pity to have missed a shot of the otter. Nice shot in my most favourite place.

A lovely arch to the sun. Great use of foreground elements to pull the eye in.
