Winter sunrise at Bronte beach


It’s been a couple of months since I dragged myself out of bed to take some sunrise photo’s. Blame it on the cooling weather here in Sydney; and my laziness. Well yesterday all that changed. I braved the winter chill (the weather app on the iPhone said the apparent air temperature was 4.6C) and got down to Bronte beach about a minute before sunrise. Yes, the sun had just crested the horizon when I started taking shots but I wasn’t fazed – I had intended on taking notice of ‘smaller details’ for this photo trip anyway. So, here’s a few quickies including a mosaic shot of those aforementioned incidentals. I have a few more that I’ll post in the next couple of days – I’d love to hear what you guys think of these so far :-). Hopefully, I’ll find more time in the next post to tell you why I’m practicing this stuff a little more too.

    You inspire me to do this, but the thought of getting up at 3 or 4 am for the 2 hour drive to the beach is a little daunting. I am going to do it one of these days.

      Oh you must Leanne, it’s invigorating – particularly where there is good coffee waiting for you afterwards. Spring or Autumn would be my picks though. Not to early to make it impossible; still warm enough to make it comfortable.

    I’m still getting used to the ‘winter chill’ of 5 C – in Scotland it was often below -5 as I left for work in the winter, even hitting -12 on occasion!
    Lovely photos – I really notice how clear and blue the sky stays here all year round.

      Yeah, you can take the weather in Sydney for granted sometimes – its pretty good year-round.

      I thought so too – I suppose the light tricked the camera and hence the colour temperature was quite warm. I didn’t alter these in post at all although it crossed my mind to cool the image temp down so it was more reflective of how cold and wintery it was.
