I'm late but not too late

I was late this morning getting to Dee Why Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) for sunrise. This was the first photograph I took, so it was a short while after sunrise. However, because of the thick band of cloud near the horizon, this was the first time the sun broke through and even at this time, the golden colours of sunrise were still around.

*Two sunrises in a day - 2 *

There was a low band of thick cloud near the horizon when I went to shoot sunrise at North Narrabeen Rockpool in Sydney's Northern Beaches area. The first sunrise was the real one. The 2nd sunrise, seen in this shot, was a lot more colourful, a few minutes later when the sun broke above the low cloud. Best viewed full screen.

There's the band again

That band of cloud at the horizon made its appearance again when I went to shoot the sunrise this weekend at South Coogee in Sydney's eastern suburbs. It was there long enough to hide the actual sunrise so my sunrise was when the sun popped out above the band of cloud.

Breakthrough

It was a cold winter morning this Sunday at Newport Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) and the band of cloud at the horizon quickly increased to cover the whole sky. There was no sunrise to shoot so I busied myself shooting other things until a break in the clouds gave the sun a chance to shoot some rays through, providing a golden path over the water to the wet sand on the beach.

Fallen dragon

When I reached Newport Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) at first light, there was a narrow band of thick cloud near the horizon but more clouds appeared with time and there was no visible sunrise. The colour tinges in the clouds were the only hint that a sun existed somewhere. BTW, anyone spot the fallen dragon on the beach? ;)

Cross that bridge

Taken at Maroubra (in Sydney's south east) just after sunrise. The rock in the foreground forms a bridge, probably covered by water at high tide.

Catch fish or a cold?

It was a nose-streamingly cold winter morning when I got to Maroubra in Sydney's south-eastern suburbs at first light. Not a bad sunrise even though the sky was almost cloudless. Two fishermen were fishing off the rocks when I got there - not the best day to get wet!

Who painted the sky?

As I approached Curl Curl Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) at first light this morning, the fleeting colours at the time promised a great sky. Sure enough, minutes after that, just before the sun rose, the sky put on a wonderful display.

Big drop

As far as waterfalls go, Gordon Falls, near the town of Leura, is not one of those with an impressive volume of water. In fact, it is not one of the major waterfalls in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, but it does plunge perhaps a kilometre into the Jamison Valley. This is one of the upper sections of the waterfall, shot zoomed in from a lookout across a narrow part of the valley. For scale, look at the trees directly below where this drop of waterfall ends - those are full grown tall eucalypt trees

Early glow

This was the first photo I took when I reached Collaroy Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) at first light. It was still dark with an ethereal red glow in the sky - I needed a flashlight to see the camera controls. The tide was receding so I could go out quite some way onto the rocks and into the shallow water.

No landing

Sunset on the Parramatta River at Birkenhead Point in Sydney's Inner West. This photo is looking due east where the sky colour was still a suffused red hue. I couldn't see the actual sunset where I was as there were obstructions in the way but the colours in the sky over the river were good regardless.

Early morning invigoration

Most of the larger Sydney beaches have a tidal pool or rockpool that is fed by fresh seawater from the ocean. They are usually built or hollowed out on natural rock shelves or inter-tidal regions on or off the beach. These provide relatively calm and safe conditions to swim in round the year. The tidal pool at Mona Vale Beach shown on the left here in this 3 frame panorama had one swimmer in it when I reached well before dawn despite it being a pretty cold winter day. Best viewed full-screen.

Hold your ground

As low as I could get safely without my camera being doused with seawater, I had to hold my ground while the waves rushed in over the rock shelf on the seaward side of the Mona Vale Beach rockpool in Sydney's Northern Beaches area.

Explosion behind the clouds

Reached Mona Vale Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) before first light but spent the time shooting everything else besides the sunrise, because there wasn't any. The cloud cover was so heavy (and it even started raining) that the sun wasn't visible. Minutes later, this golden glow appeared where the sun was attempting to hide behind the clouds, and was reflected in the water on top of the rock shelf off the beach where I was standing. 3 frame panorama.

Do you see the space monster?

A different aspect of the ceiling of the beautiful Basílica de la Sagrada Família (Church of the Holy Family) in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, which was designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. 

The space monster? Well, if you look for the 2 blue-white eyes midway down the frame, the many jewelled nose and the stained glass mouth. It even has 2 more eyes on stalks, one blue, one green (top of frame). Just an overactive imagination, did you say? Well, perhaps! ;)

Seeing red

Made it a point to reach Bronte Beach in Sydney's eastern suburbs well before first light today but the clouds got there before me! This was the first photograph I took and that sliver of bright red was all we got. Couldn't see the actual sunrise as the dark clouds covered everything. Was instantly wet even before I took a single photograph. Even though I was about a metre and a half above the water, the waves were higher. Was uncomfortably wet for a few hours - not fun in winter.

Break to cascade

4 frame multiple exposure from when the wave broke over the raised rock through to cascading from the right and then to the left. I was standing on a rock shelf in the sea covered with algae. It is normally all submerged except at very low tide. Don't know what man tried to build here with concrete but the sea has long since reclaimed it.

Something's walking on my foot

Today's sunrise visit to Bilgola Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) proved that it is worth visiting a place again. Not only is every sunrise different but the tide this morning at this beach was lower than I've seen before and I could walk on the rock shelves that are normally submerged, right around the headland to Newport Beach. Among the profusion of the marine algae Hormosira banksii was so much sea life that I could have stood there and looked at it all day!

I'm late but not too late

I was late this morning getting to Dee Why Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) for sunrise. This was the first photograph I took, so it was a short while after sunrise. However, because of the thick band of cloud near the horizon, this was the first time the sun broke through and even at this time, the golden colours of sunrise were still around.

Eyes on the sides of my head

This is a test shot - one of the first with a new Samyang 12mm f/2.8 Fisheye manual lens, shot a few minutes after sunrise this morning at Dee Why Beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches area. When shot with the horizon in the centre, the fisheye effect is not apparent and it behaves like a 12mm ultra-wide. What I like is that this lens has a 180 degree field of view on a FF camera - the beach you see in the distance (Dee Why) was actually on my left, and the headland in the centre of the frame is Long Reef Point, which should have been a lot further to the left. The skate board on extreme right was also not in my own field of view. Due to the extreme curvature of the front element, I can't attach any filters otherwise I would have curbed some highlight blow-out with an ND Grad where the sun was bright behind the clouds, and got rid of some reflection off... more »

Due to the extreme curvature of the front element, I can't attach any filters otherwise I would have curbed some highlight blow-out with an ND Grad where the sun was bright behind the clouds, and got rid of some reflection off the wet rocks with a CPL. Some exposure compensation next time perhaps.___

Along the length

This is a view across the length of the beautiful Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia), showing the high vaulted ceiling and chapels all around the periphery.

Three frame vertorama, high ISO as it was pretty dark inside. 16mm, f/8.0, 1/15sec, ISO 10000, handheld.

Magnificent

We almost didn't visit this building. We were wandering around Barcelona and headed somewhere else, but passed by the Barcelona Cathedral and went in. What a beautiful building! Constructed between the 13th and 15th centuries, this Gothic cathedral is simply magnificent.

Mostly clear? Not where I was!

Didn't bode well when I set out today well before first light to shoot the sunrise at Warriewood Beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches area. It was raining and the whole sky was obscured by thick dark clouds. Stood on the sand in the water at the south end of the beach with an umbrella over the camera and tripod but while I was there, the subdued orange glow you see here was the only indication that the sun existed. Of course, life is perverse because when I drove back home, the sun came out!
