Cradle of The Sun
Sunrise photos are special to me, early morning is my favourite time of the day. It’s when I feel more creative, it’s when I like to train, go outside chasing sunrises and in general I get more things done.
Photographing at this time of the day makes me feel like I’m doing something special, it makes the entire experience of going to location, setting up my camera, choosing a composition and taking the actual photo, more exciting and unique.
I am pretty sure that all the photographers in love with early mornings agree with me.
This is one of my favourite places to shoot a sunrise, North Narrabeen Rockpool.
Last time I was there, I thought that I was not going to be able to position my tripod in the spot I wanted, since I got there a bit late (right before sunrise) and another photographer was already setting up right where I wanted to be.
Luckily for me he decided to move from the spot and I very happily took his position. Here’s the shot I got.
The sky was absolutely spectacular, a huge explosion of colours. I took this photo with my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II (read my complete review of this camera here) and obtained the final result by blending multiple exposures in Photoshop, I’m very happy about it. On that day a lot of landscape photographers in Sydney that like me love getting up early have been rewarded with this amazing show of nature.
Here’s the before and after:
