Clovelly Sunrise…

by on Nov.30, 2012, under Life, Photography

Gerry invited us out for a very early sunrise shoot at Clovelly over the weekend. It was a 5AM start at the Clovelly headland and a short scramble over the rocks along the coast to the location.

Unfortunately very little cloud again made for a not very spectacular sunrise, although the subtle pastel colours in the sky was quite nice at the time and you can’t fault the weather/temperature – I was in shorts and a t-shirt even 30 minutes before the sun had hit the horizon. Too much haze and salt spray cloying the air for my liking but it was good christening for the brand new 16-35/4.

I had a couple total failure composition attempts before this one below showed the most promise at the time – over half of all my shots from the morning (and I only took just over 40 in total) were essentially of this basic composition. I was struggling however to get the right amount of water flow and catching it with the water flowing in the places I wanted it 🙂

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Company great, balmy weather pleasant, breakfast actually reasonably good, images meh sorry…
