Sunrise over Bronte Beach
Last weekend I decided to set an early alarm and visit Bronte beach again. It’s been quite a few months since my last visit and with the weather warming up down here in the southern hemisphere I didn’t have the excuse of a cold winter morning to dissuade me.
It was a beautifully clear morning which is great for sight-seeing and swimming but not so great for photo’s. Even without the clouds the sunrise was glorious. Pastel hues of gold and amber chased the mauve and blue tones of the retreating night. The light north-easterly breeze helped flatten the ocean and quieten the tranquility of the low tide even further. For most of the photo’s in this series I used my 9 stop polarising filter to grab longer exposures to smooth the water further.
And, if you’re wondering; I chickened out of having a swim this time. It was just a little too cold for my liking 😉
