Up early for sunrise at Gerroa's 'Seven Mile Beach' this morning.
With all the smoke from the bushfires around and the conditions looking 'ok' for a decent sunrise at Gerroa it was an early one today, up at 4 am and out the door, no plans for a timelapse .. just to get out have a shoot and catch some colour with a bit of luck.
By the time I made Kiama I hadn't seen a star and there was a decent sou westerly blowing the trees along the side of the road.
Still "you pays your money and takes your chances" as they say and you never know what the next hours going to bring.
As the sky came into view things weren't looking too promising, so I had a cuppa, watched the birds and joggers start their morning routine and let my eye have a wander around to see anything else of interest.
Well normally I hang around on a cloudy morning and see what will happen when the sun finally breaks thru ... There looked to be no chance of that today so back to the car and the chance to spot some locations on the way home.
Nearing Bombo the sun broke thru the thick cloud and smoke casting this honey-coloured light over everything. I'd been eyeing this pair of figs off for a while hoping to catch them in some favorable conditions. This was a very settled image for me - I can phaph around more than a bit at times - and only took two frames.
Looking at the light and cloud, which was taking its time leaving I headed up to the Shallows at Bass Point hoping it would last.
It was brilliant to make it there in time for these 3 images .. the sou westerly was pretty darn cold and a couple of the board rides that came out said it was more than a little chilly out there.
Finally, it was time for brekky.. (and another cuppa!) .. as always thanks for taking the time to drop by and feel free to comment and share.
