shells at sunrise

When I’m at the beach early in the morning, I often have the same photography routine – get there before sunrise, set up the tripod and do some experimental long shutter speed shots, then get some nice landscape photos as the sun rises, then put the camera in the waterproof housing and get some wave shots (if it is warm enough!). This one morning there was not a cloud to be seen, and after getting some nice, but predictable sunrise photos, I decided to pay attention to some of the smaller features that morning – a range of beautiful shells that were washed up on the beach and glowing with the rising sun. I was pleased I broke out of routine – I’d love to know if you have a photography routine you get stuck in, and how do you get out of it?
