Captured on our glamping island get away to Roko Island in the Torres Strait Islands of Australia. Mother nature put on a show this morning! Capturing this unique jetty with character was one of my goals for our stay on the tiny island.
Taken on a rare sunrise for me is the 3rd artwork in my Corindi Beach collection. I had previously scouted this composition from walks along Corindi Beach, NSW (in the Coffs Harbour Region) and my sunset captures. I was unsure how the tide would impact the capture, but as with all my photography artworks, unless I head out to have a look, I don't know. The hard part with sunrise is you can't really see to tell before then rushing to get the right composition. This time it paid off and although I usually like some clouds in the sky for interest, I rather prefer the simplicity of this image and the sun rising against the blue water.
Story coming soon!
An early winter morning on the way to the Gallery saw me attempting to make my way to the beaches for what promised to be a beautiful sunrise.
A happy twist of fate saw me running a few minutes late, and I was only at Honeysuckle when the sky began to light up incredibly beautifully.
I parked quickly, grabbed my bag and sprinted for the water's edge, and the first composition that came to me in the moment.
The colour above me lasted only a minute, and I was thanking my lucky stars that everything came together, with the pink clouds leading your eye to the working Newcastle Harbour precinct.
Story coming soon.
This image was taken during a trip to Victoria at the very start of 2017. I was at Whisky Bay for sunrise (just). We had been kicked out of our sleeping spot in the carpark at Whisky Bay for "Safety", so had to drive all the way out of the park at 11pm, and drive all the way back in at 4am!
Anyway, it was dark when we headed down to the beach. I got some beautiful pre-dawn photo's which I will share with you later, however during the sunrise I spotted this outcropping of rocks and decided to climb up to see if I could get a better view.
Near the top, I saw this incredible natural feature, a slit in the rocks with the surf pounding in and out, just as the natural red lichen in the area was being lit beautifully by the rising sun.
