I had to get up early for this sunrise picture. I took it at 06.48 on 13th March. It was a cold but, fortunately, a wind free morning. I liked the way it bathed Straight Point in the morning light.

Our next photo challenge is ‘Best Selfie!’ - we want to see your favourite self portrait, taken anywhere in East Devon. Remember, a selfie doesn’t have to be a close-up - you can use your camera’s timer and place yourself anywhere in the picture!
