Daybreak, Ballure Road

                Before even the sun rises, I'm up

Not often you can stand in the middle of the road to take a photo, but before sunrise you can. Absolutely no traffic. Ballure Road is the road leads out of Ramsey, towards, Maughold, and eventually onto the Isle of Man Capital, Douglas. You can see by the chimney pots, this is a residential area. Behind those chimney pots lies, the beach. That's where I was heading to capture the sunrise. On the left hand side you can see silhouetted scaffolding where locals flats/apartments are having a spot of renovation and building work. From those flats you get a fantastic coastal view straight onto both  beaches. Yes we have two, as the harbour inlet separates them, unless the tide is out far enough to have one continuous walk round beach. The view before sunrise is often more intense than sunrise itself.
