A STUNNING image has been captured by budding photographer Matt Fidler during a breathtaking sunrise.

The amateur snapper took the photograph as morning broke at picture postcard Pin Mill.

And his amazing photo comes a few days after The Star revealed that �230,000 is to be spent on the hard, which leads out into the river. It is to be restored in a move which will tidy up the area and also create space for Thames sailing barges to be restored and maintained.

Mr Fidler set his alarm early and got the shot using his Canon EOS 5D Mark II after waiting patiently for just the right moment.

“When you are out fishing you see some nice scenes because of the time of day and I started doing the wildlife photography but for the last few months have been leaning towards land and seascapes.”

But incredibly he admitted he was never quite satisfied with his photographs.

“When I look at them I can think they are awful and not quite right and it needs someone to tell me 'no' and that they do look good,” he added
