Having been to Cronulla before and given the earlier experience at Maroubra I had a better idea of what might be achieved this time. It was certainly a different result as the tide and sunrise were not as well aligned.
As the sky began to brighten I arrived and set up, at first concentrating on the water in a similar way to the week before. But once the sun rose up behind the low cloud bank I reframed the scene to capture the unexpected beauty emerging in the sky.
From the sun first rising until the colours faded was only twelve minutes.
|The colours in the sky were enthralling and the rays of the sun were spectacular. The other photographer was a bonus.|
