In the last few days we managed to get a couple of nights away at the coast. We stayed at Waratah Bay which is near Wilsons Prom, the most southern point of mainland Australia. Today I was rewarded with an amazing sunrise. I had checked the tide times and knew high tide would be about 2 hours before first light – perfect! This image was taken about 15 minutes before actual sunrise…. 🙂

How beautiful is that! Some moments should last for hours. But if they can’t…have a camera.
Thank you for sharing this pic. I’ll look at it each morning of the long winter.
Thanks Steve, I suspect you may see more from this trip!
Great morning shot – long exposure? I like the way the water has that glass-like glow in the reflected light. This shot makes getting away even better.
Thanks Robert. Glad you liked the water – was exactly what I was after. I’d watched the reflections on our first afternoon there and hoped for a colourful sunrise one of the mornings – mother nature didn’t disappoint! Metered for the sky so not very long, about a second from memory. I should get delivery of your book today hopefully 🙂
Good – thanks for the information on the shot – that time seems about right enough blur to do what you did, not so much so to make the water have no detail in it. Regarding the book – I’m curious for your feedback. Also, as I would like to sign it (but that is not practical) send me a postal address and I have a postcard with a book image on it – I’ll send that you you N/C if you would like.
PS – send your postal address to my email:
Love the dreamlike, slightly-wavy reflections in the water! I’m not quite sure if they’re due to ripples from the mouth of a nearby stream or wet sand and very shallow water. Beautiful composition, Lisa!
Thanks Gary. It’s very wet sand with a thin film of water (the tide was going out). This bay was beautiful – a long big arch 🙂
Absolutely beautiful! Adrian
Glad you liked it Adrian 🙂
I’ve spent a bit of time looking at this upside down and it’s just as amazing, I’m lost in it
another great moment captured Lisa
Lol! Only you would look at it upside down Matty!
Compositionally, this gorgeous image leads me far away and into a holiday. Love it. Want it! Thank you!
Thank you and go do it!!!
Perfect photo of this wonder – ful morning.
Thank you once again – I got very wet feet but it was worth it!
