    no filter or additional accessories

    just wait for 1st light for sunrise and last light for sunset, you should be able to see the whole "egg yolk"

    see my sunset shot

    Share some tips

    There are a few filters (that I know of ) that are useful for sunrise/sunset shots
    ND Filter
    work like sunglass tt blocks the light enter into the lens. It is useful to stop down the shutter speed like 1sec or slower to capture smooth & silky effect of the sea

    Graduated ND Filter
    balance the exposure between the bright sky and dark ground. It is the square/rectangle filter type with HOYA or LEE filter holder allow you to adjust the horizon level easily.

    Polariser Filter
    Cut down the unneccessary reflection on the sea.
