SkyWatch Friday: Nudgee sunrise

Back in March, I photographed my second ever sunrise. It wasn't full of incredible cloud formations BUT it was incredibly beautiful just the same!

You have made this old Nudgee girl very happy. I've never seen the beach look so beautiful. Mind you, it's many long years since I was there at sunrise, too. Glorious shots, thank you.
