Dawn Over The Red Sea

I'm not sure I have ever felt as relaxed as I did spending a couple of nights on the shores of the famous Red Sea in Egypt near Nuweiba. I spent so much of that time being lazy on the beach, but the photographer side of me couldn't be kept entirely out of the race. That was what found me standing on the shores of the Red Sea on our first morning there. I wanted to see the sun rise over Saudi Arabia on the horizon.
And what a show that sunrise gave me. And I'm so glad I got up that morning as the next day the skies were gray and overcast. But that first morning... wow... Look at the gold, red, and pink hues on the horizon and the dark blues... And all of it reflecting in the dark waters of that ancient sea.
Every time I look at this sunrise picture, I'm transported back to that quiet morning on the Red Sea. Nothing but the sound of the waves breaking on the beach, a chill in the air, but warm skies... Sigh...
