It really is... because I do love a sun rise photograph. There is something magical about the quality of light held in those first few rays that hit the horizon. But it comes at a cost. With this image I woke up at 4 am yes 4 am! I was on leave so that didn't really matter to much but what was really fun is I took my boy Caleb along as well, he thought its was great to wake up when it was still dark and sneak around the house and watch the sun come up.This image wasn't really what I was hoping for, I really wanted some dramatic cloud as well but I should have guessed since its the middle of summer here in Australia and on what later became a fairly hot day no rightly thinking cloud would be caught dead in the Australia sun.
Perhaps if I go back in winter I will be able to sleep in and get my cloud as well.
