I was going to do my usual thing and post a sunset in stages, but then I remembered I hadn't posted my first ever sunrise which I shot the morning after the "Super moon"... after staying up all night! (I stayed up because I missed shooting the moon due to one of our adult children visiting for dinner and staying until late)
Perigee or Super Moon shot at 4:29am
After being up all night, my husband suggested we drive to Wellington Point, on the bay, and shoot a sunrise, we arrived as the moon was setting over the water
We turned around and walked 100m to the other side of the point... I had no idea what I was doing regarding settings but there were plenty of photographers there and I asked one what settings he was using.
I was hoping for more clouds and more colours but it was great to watch & capture the sun rising. I know one thing for sure, I won't be doing an all-nighter like that again! It took me too long to recover.
