New Years Day Sunrise

Well, after an hour and ten minutes of sleep I managed to get down to Bronte Beach to see the rising sun usher in a new year. It was a glorious, kind of ‘goldilocks’ morning – not-too-hot, not-too-cold, just right.

Hope you’re having a lovely day in your neck of the woods. All the best for 2016!

      I find early mornings are invigorating anyway but when you’re blessed with the warm, creamy tones of a beautiful sunrise, it’s easy. About the only thing I concentrate on is making sure I’m getting as much dynamic range in the exposure as possible. Thanks for the lovely comment too, Paula. Hope your New Year’s Day is equally inspiring.
