Good that I stayed close to this spot, or I would have been to tired (lazy) to get up and go here so early in the morning. But great as there are no people there at that time. I was actually warned, that I could be stop by security guards for using tripods in the marina, but luckily it happened only once. But I was prepared either way, as I had my Manfrotto clamp with me, and that can be attached to the railing very quickly :)

This photo was taken around 6 in the morning, right before the sunrise. I had no panorama head with me, but usually one can stitch images even when shoot just from a normal head. This is a panorama from 3 tiles, each one from 4 exposures.
