Swansea Sunrise

I was up early yesterday morning, so I decided to walk down to the beach to see if an attractive sunrise might develop. It did!

The Meridian Tower in Swansea Marina, with a windfarm on the hill behind:

Finally, I turned my camera and tripod around so I was facing about ninety degrees to the sunrise for this shot, pointing my lens out to sea and using a long exposure:
