An early morning rise for amateur photographer Mary Neil led to her catching this snap of the sunrise in Ely.

“I took this by Ely riverside and I thought the patterns in the sky looked really nice,” she said.

“The clouds looked different and it was very serene. You could see that the weather was going to change soon.”

The 76-year-old says that she enjoys catching the natural beauty of the sunrise on her iPad.

She added: “It keeps me happy, has become a nice hobby and is a good bit of exercise too.”
