Light in a Dark World

Moving from one side of Australia to another. This is a morning photo from Emerald Beach, north of Coffs Harbour in New South Wales.

Whenever we travel over east I need to become an even earlier riser than usual to make sure that I catch some of that wonderful sunrise light. Sunrises were around 5.30am last time we were there and that meant getting up around 4am in order to arrive at a location at least an hour before the sun came up.

Some locations I was able to scout out the day before and some we just went to not knowing what to expect. This was one such spot. The low tide was useful for being able to walk a fair way out onto the rocks and the still pools of water provided a great opportunity for reflections.

The rock formations on the east coast are just so varied from place to place. Each location has its own special characteristics and it makes discovering them even more special. I loved all the seascape scenes open up before me - just like the one here.
