Changing Light

It has always amazed me the difference a few minutes can make during sunrises or sunsets.  Below you will see two photographs taken just a few minutes apart.  You can see in the first one that the sun hasn't risen to the point that direct light is hitting the buildings.  It is however strangely iluminating the clouds just above them. 

A short time later the second shot was taken.  It is easy to tell that it is just after the sun has fully risen as the light is directly reflected in the clouds, the buildings and the water.  Always remember, at sunset and sunrise if you don't like the light just wait a few minutes.

These two images are distinctly different and each one works depending on what you like.
