Sunrise in the River City

One morning, a few weeks ago, I woke up at 4am to shoot sunrise along the Brisbane River. Many of you will know that I am NOT a morning person, so waking to shoot sunrise is a rare occurrence for this self-confessed "night owl"! We arrived in the dark and made our way to the river by torch light to meet a group of fellow crazy photographers.

Every time I have ventured out for sunrise, I wonder why I don't make the sacrifice more often. There is something incredible about watching a new day dawn... from total darkness, to 'first light', to the moment the sun breaks on the horizon!

It's quite some time since I've been out with my camera!! That will definitely have to change as I am heading to the USA in 2 and a half weeks: Los Angeles, Seattle, Alaska crusie then back to LA & home.

One word : Wow ! And you are so right when you say you should make the sacrifice more often to contemplate (and shoot) the birth of a new day ! That's what I keep telling myself but ....
