As photographers, we are often forced to work with the conditions as they exist. I would have preferred a beautiful sunrise instead of this gloom. This is my attempt at making the best of a bad situation. My wife says this looks like Godzilla's head. Big stopper, 4 minute exposure. B&W conversion in Photoshop.

It looks as if gloomy served you well in this case.

Oh, and your wife is right.

Looks more like King Kong to me, but very nice shot regardless.

Great result given the conditions. It does look a little like a monster rising for the sea.

Great shot cerett. In my opinion Big Stopper made your composition much more gloomy, was is cool.

Probably I should drink something to improve my imagination, because I can't see neither King Kong nor Godzilla ;-)a
