New years day 2017: Sunrise over Bronte beach


Bronte beach and the first sunrise for 2017.

After doing a quick edit and blog post of last night’s new years fireworks, I managed to get to bed at 3.30am. My alarm went off at 4.50am – a full hour and 20 minutes later 😦 . Grumble aside, there’s nothing quite like being able to see the sun breach the horizon and feel those warm rays herald in the new year. Magical.

The now traditional new-years swim was also awesome, although a little colder than it was last week. And, as I’ve come to expect on this day, Bronte was again host to a mash of tourists, new years eve all-nighters’, lovers, locals, joggers, hippies and council workers.

Wherever you are in the world, have a wonderful day and here’s to 2017!

My favourite shot of the morning.


Oh, and here’s the gallery viewer if you prefer to see the images at full-screen with the camera info and settings.
