The Palmetto in the background made a nice touch.
Let me know what you find.
I prefer to shoot sunrise / sunset with my backup Canon 70D and a prime lens. I just think I get better colors and tones with that body.
I swapped before we left so I could play with a zoom a little. These images were buried on the other card and almost forgotten.

A clear morning, the sun above the horizon, but still low with plenty of shadows.
Taken at Donnelley Wildlife Management Area, South Carolina.
This is a hard place to photograph around dawn. The sun is usually hidden off behind the tree line, everything else is still dark.
The wooden trunk (water gate) was open and flowing so I had hoped a white bird would show up for some interest. No bird so I did the best I could.
A view from the middle of the Hog Island road, in a wildlife management area.
At the end is hundreds of acres of marshland. However, this is not a park and in fall the grasses and reeds are twice as tall as a person. I couldn’t see much.
BTW, at the end here we are always careful. This is one of the few places a large Alligator is openly a aggressive.
This prompted us to stop rather than continue to a larger open marsh area.
