There were some big ships in Sydney last week for the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet Review to mark 100 years since the navy first entered Sydney Harbour. Warships came from all over the world, including Britain, France, the USA, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan and Thailand. Even Prince Harry turned up. It made quite a spectacle on the harbour. We even got a helicopter fly-past in Manly.
I never get bored of watching the sunrise. Good to see some people are already up, making the most of it.
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?
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 the first week of spring and we’ve had a run of beautiful, crystal clear days. There’s not been a great deal of surf though, but the early birds are getting what they can.
The last day of winter. A beautiful morning, but still a bit too cold for pre-dawn laps.
Same place, different day…
