Awesome! That is one amazing capture of the Sun’s reflection on splashing sea water. I was hoping the splash of gold splashed far enough for us to catch some gold of our own….ha, ha, ha.
Wow! That’s a pretty amazing sight! Good eye to have seen it in the first place!
It was lucky the camera picked it up as well,,,
That must have been a BEAUTIFUL DAY!!! I have never been on a boat except for a water ferry 2 times… pretty sad but I’m from IOWA were land locked! I will make it a priority to get out on Lake Michigan now that we live here!
It was a beautiful day .. to watch the fisherman preparing for a day on the sea, hoping to catch the winner… and then to get these photos.. I felt a winner without a fish…
Leave only footprints behind take only pictures! That’s why your so cool!
Awesome catches … all the angles, including the sun’s, had to be in sync to catch these!
Thanks Frank.. I agree I saw it with my eye but didn’t think it would come out on the photos…
Sometimes luck plays a big role!
Love these pics.
Very well done, Bulldog. Vis a vis your comment to Colonialist – isn’t it wonderful to discover what some shots contain. But you REALLY scored on this one. Love it…I saw gold on black waves at sundown on our west coast years ago. I wrote a poem about it, but didn’t have a camera.
I find I often see this type thing yet when one takes the photo the colour hue is not there… I was so pleased to see this time it was…
Amazing! Now I want to go fishing
You can have it.. one thing I don’t do…fish..
Photography is all about light and this one is beautiful.
Thank you.. it’s wonderful to discover that I actually captured the colour I could see with the eye…doesn’t always happen…
Beautiful action shots, bulldog. Some of those boats look like they are beginning to fly into the sky through the golden spray.
That was actually what I was there to capture.. the sun reflection was just a bonus…
Wowww… amazing… two thumbs up…
Yehaaawwww Great captures!
oops – wasn’t done – wanted to say these were gorgeous captures… can really feel the motion to the sea too — beautiful bulldog ~ xo much Love R
Thank you Robyn… so you did like them…
Splashes of gold – wow
You like them then… wish I could collect it…
Good active photos, liked the splash of gold.
Beautiful pictures, Bulldog. Love the gold reflection.
Thank you.. don’t know how to replicate it.. I must have been at the right angle for the rising sun to make the colour…
I love these splashes of gold…is it just after dawn or before dusk? Do you live close to the ocean?
This was a sun up.. I lived at the coast for 5 years before we started to develop the computer program which required that I moved to the city in land…
Are you still close to the coast, I mean if you want to do a short day trip for example?
An hour in a plane or 6 hours by car… which we do quite often… Highway all the way…
wow that’s further than I imagined but glad you get to go!
In South Africa we tend to travel long distances for the smallest of reasons… we complain like hell about fuel prices but we still do it…lol… I have driven down for two nights just to have a friend check on one of the modules of our program… seems like madness but we do it without thinking…
Incredible reflection effects. I don’t recall having seen anything like it, and I have watched plenty of departing boats!
I caught this off Shelly beach whilst living in Southbroom… the sunrise just gave that colour to the spray.. I noticed it and started to take photos…
What time of the year was it?
Mid winter… I took so many pictures before the sun rise when the sky had that good orange hue of winter, which became a bright yellow as can be seen in the one photo as the sun hit the horizon.. I think the angle I was at to the boats and the sun gave this brilliant gold colour… it did not last long as the sun got higher.. but while it was there the camera took what it could… some of the photos showed up very dark, I think from the angle of the boat and spray… but these just astounded me when I downloaded the photos…
I need to get up earlier in midwinter!
Hell in Durbs you can get up 2 hours before sunrise and still be warm in winter….lol
True – I find the best way of waking up in winter is to go for a swim.
How simply stunning, BD! Poetry in motion…
Thank you.. the rising sun played with the spray…
Only nature can spin that kind of gold. And only an adept photographer can capture it. Bravo!
Thank you Lorna.. was sitting watching a spotted the colour of the rising sun… click went the camera..
Golden magic of the sea. Beautiful catches!
Thank you .. loved seeing this…
Oh, very nice pictures.
I love catching light like that. Great shots
Ooh, pretty! Do you boat?
Yes I do.. but I don’t fish.. water ski.. and hobie sailing.. and just about anything else that comes along..
