Easter sunrise on the Deben

I managed to drag myself out of bed this morning at 6am to see what I could make of the rising sun over the river Deben at Woodbridge. The conditions looked a little frosty and there were some decent breaks on the clouds, so I set of full of enthusiasm.
However, it wasn’t the most colourful sunrise after all, but I was taken by the tranquillity of the conditions, and the sound of a myriad birds singing as the sun rose. Even the presence of a churchy group belting out hymns at the riverside, could not break the spell, and I was glad I made the effort. Everyone at some point should make a point of experiencing a sunrise at a beautiful place like this; its another world.



I took these images a couple of years ago when we visited Cornwall. We were very close to this beautiful corner of the coastline, so I found plenty of opportunities to capture the fascinating rocks on the shore line, which I assume gave rise to the name or Portwrinkle?
Portwrinkle is a small coastal village in south-east Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is at the western end of Whitsand Bay five miles south-west of Saltash.
Portwinkle was traditionally a fishing village and the old 17th century walls of the pilchard cellars are still standing, although they have been incorporated into housing. The village has a harbour and two beaches are accessible from it. Although the village has no shops, apart from the beach car park cafe, there is a post office in nearby village of Crafthole.

I have included a couple of images from Landsend and Sennen Cove.
