I hope you don’t mind, but I have a few more from our last trip to Cape Henlopen SP, DE. There was no sunrise color on this particular morning, but the clouds along with the blue tones in the sky were quite nice and I was not about to pass them up. The waves were also not bad so I just tried to time the shots for something interesting. Here is one of the ones I liked while shooting down along one of the two breakwaters along the beach.
As always thanks for taking a moment to leave your thoughts.

Is this a composite: No
Nikon D800, Nikon 17-35 @35mm, f 14 @ 0.5 sec, ISO 100, cable release & tripod.
Ed, we don’t mind at all, keep 'em coming. I really like the balance in this image. The clouds are nicely framed, and that far wave provides an excellent separation. Great shot and great selection of shutter speed.
It’s an unusual composition for a seascape, and is a bit right heavy, but in the end it works okay for me. You did do a great job handling the dynamic range. And I do love how the small wave is curling up in the LRC.
And I just couldn’t resist seeing this stormy day in B&W, although it has a different mood.
I love the composition and the scene. I wonder about bringing out a bit more tonal detail in both the dark rocks and the light sky. I had to have a look. I’d be tempted to bring even more drama into the clouds, as @Ed_McGuirk did.
Great shot, Ed. The comp works well for me. I guess technically it would be considered right heavy. But to me it doesn’t present that way. I really like @Ed_McGuirk 's B&W rework. I was going to ask you why you didn’t think of that, but you explained it to me.
