Sunrise at Shorncliffe

A couple of months ago, I went on a sunrise shoot with a photography group I am a member of. It was the last couple of days of summer so sunrise is a much later (around 5:15am). When we got up at 4am the sky was very overcast and it would have been very easy to go back to bed as we had a 40 min drive to the location. As we drove, I was hoping the sky would clear a bit but with no wind at all, there wasn't much hope.
So an overcast sunrise it was! It was very subdued but I rather like it.




Unfortunately Shorncliffe Pier is closed due to being very unstable, so I wasn't able to get "down the pier" shots. Thankfully this wonderful piece of history is going to be refurbished over the next 2 years.

Great shots of this long, long jetty that fairly makes my fingers itch to fish there.

Pauline said...

Love these and so happy to hear the jetty is to be refurbished. I have wonderful childhood memories of this place and remember when there was a 'penny arcade' on it.

I would sat that these images were worth both the drive and the early start!
