I enjoy dawn photography the most because it's quiet and peaceful. The light can also be intriguing and can change very quickly from cool to warm from one minute to the next, depending on how the sun peeks through the clouds. Sometimes I come home empty handed with nothing but grey images, but every now and then the dawn rewards my early rising. Either way it's good for the soul.

Apparently some team from Hawaii made the sand carving the day before and I chanced upon it that following morning. The pixels are pretty noisy as can be expected from an inexpensive compact camera... oh how I wish I had my 5N back then! .
