Thanks everyone for the votes and comments. It was quite an exciting week watching the score jump around.

There hasn't been good boat shooting weather in this spot for about a year but there's been a very long period of dead winds here now so I've had 3 weeks of shooting opportunities. I've taken over a thousand pictures at this spot and all the boats here in the last few weeks. Here's an outtake from the same day long before the sun was near the horizon:

I know it was somewhat recognizable as mine but it was really flattering to be mistaken for a 21.gif Bear_Music shot by a couple of dpcers. :)

Congrats Mark, another stunner!
I realized my 10 didn't even count towards your score since I never made it to 20% voting!

Wow such beautiful light and reflections
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gorgeous photograph. I like how you used the line up of boats to lead the viewer to the sunrise. The reflection on the water is beautiful dimension of this photo. Everyone's view of the event is different, subjective, but I like to see more deepness in the color, as well as range of color cast from the sun. All in all, great photo!

A scene you used before, but what an excellent image. Those boats just finish it.
I feel lucky to live in Scotland and enjoy beautiful sceneries and sunsets, but this view is even more stunnishing.

I've only seen 3 photos so far but this has to be the winner!! Wish I could give it more than a 10.

Will gold transform into blue/yellow/red?
I hope so because this is so beautiful.

Have you ever not scored a ribbon from this place? Incredible justice done to this beautiful location and sunrise!

OMG THAT IS SPECTACULAR. Love the leading diagonal line of the boats. The clouds- wow!! 10

Has to be a Cuttooth! Painted sky and obedient boats :) Should do well, despite the literal DPCers needing (the lacking) Sun...

I just told my husband that "I want to go visit here" ... wherever "here" is. This is gorgeous. I can't believe the smoothness of the water and such vibrant pre-dawn light. Beautiful work.
