An alternative angle on sunrise. Here are some shots we took a couple of weeks ago (before the weather turned wild) experimenting with new ways to photograph the sunrise. What do you think?
After several weeks of beautiful calm weather and flat seas, some swell finally rolled in. I woke up this morning to see some pretty big sets arriving at Freshwater Beach. Two crazy surf-skiers were out there enjoying the wild ride.
It’s the spring equinox today (according the Australian Bureau of Meteorology), which means that day and night are equal duration. Technically it’s when the Earth’s axis is perpendicular to the sun. I think! Anyway, we had a beautiful sunrise at Manly at around 5:43 this morning.
It’s been a very warm start to spring – the flowers are loving it! Here’s a shot I took with my iPhone of Sydney Harbour.
The last day of winter. A beautiful morning, but still a bit too cold for pre-dawn laps.
What a contrast from last weekend. Offshore winds flattened the surf making great conditions for snorkelers, divers and SUP-boarders.
I haven’t posted for a while. Partly because it’s winter and the days are short — I leave for work in the dark and come home in the dark so I haven’t had much time to get out with my camera. Shame because winter is beautiful here — the air is crisp and clear and when it’s not raining the beach is awesome. Hopefully I’ll see some whales cruising past soon. In the meantime, here’s a selection of photos from my cloud collection. Remember, I have warned you before, I’m a cloud nerd. (Click on the thumbnails below to view the gallery)

Same place, different day…
