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.
The 40-year-old only took up land and seascape photography recently but this is the second time his work has been showcased in the Evening Star.
In February, we printed Mr Fidler's stunning shot of Southwold Pier as the sun was rising and snow coated the beach.

The BT control room operator said his latest shot was taken on Monday.
“I left home about 5.30am to get there and get set up in time because I knew what shot it was that I wanted,” he said.
“Most of the land and seascape shots I take are early in the morning or late in the evening because the light is so much better.”
Mr Fidler, of Ipswich, said his main hobby had been fishing until he took an interest in wildlife photography around three years ago.
“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
