Shooting sunrise in Kuala Selangor

Did something unheard off today... at least for me. I woke up at 5:30am and at 6am I was already out on the road with my F801s and F4s, driving towards Kuala Selangor, about 1 hour drive away from Kuala Lumpur. That's the part next to the Straits of Melacca. The aim was to arrive there about 7am to catch the run rising over KL and having a backdrop that's a mangrove swamp and fishing village doesn't hurt. The photoshoot was quite standard, till at one moment of time, I managed to catch the sun breaking through the clouds with rays of light diffusing all over the sky. Too bad there were too many manmade objects like a bridge and visible streetlamps to make it look natural (at least I can't crop it out with my 200mm lens). Finished the shoot at 8am... lets see what the outcome is.

Shot 1 roll of Fuji NPC 160 and half roll of Fuji Velvia 50.
