After days of overcast weather and while leaving Sydney at around 4am to ensure I would arrive in time for dawn, this day turned out to be fantastic. Mind you I had no faith that the cloud cover along the coast would allow for sunrise photography, so it was a bit hit and miss.
It was still dark when I arrived but already the locals were getting ready for their morning dip.
They kindly gave me a few minutes to set up my tripod at exactly the right time because the clouds parted sufficiently to make a blanket on which the dawning light spread and reflected into the pool of near still water.
As usual at dawn more often than not, a ripple of wind lightly touched the pool to dispel the total stillness.
I thought Sydney had tremendous sunrises but this one was truly spectacular.
I even took Sun Tzu (my dog) with me. Mind you, he slept in the car while I was out shooting. He was rewarded with a run along the beach next door which was dog friendly.
A nice way to start the day isn’t it..
