I was lucky enough to have a prime position to see the New Year fireworks on Sydney Harbour last night. What a show!
Hello summer, where’s the sun?
It was hot and humid in Sydney overnight so I woke up feeling murky and grey and nothing was in focus. A bit like these pictures from my morning swim. But it was beautiful none-the-less and I even got to say hello to a ray.
Early morning burn
I never get bored of watching the sunrise. Good to see some people are already up, making the most of it.
There are times when you just can’t be bothered to lug your camera gear around. And you don’t always need to with most phone cameras these days. It’s hard to see what you’re shooting sometimes, but here’s a few shots, mostly taken around Sydney, that have somehow turned out okay.
Sculpture by the Sea 2012
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?
Salt in the air
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.
Waiting for the sun
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.
