An early start to get down to Coalcliff in time for sunrise. As usual it was another late night last minute plan to head out on Sunday.

The aim was really to shoot waterfalls – since it had been raining heavily in Sydney for a few days.



NIKON D750 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 18 mm, 124 sec at f/11, ISO 100

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

This was the first shot of the day – still 25 minutes till sunrise. I probably could have just stopped there and been pretty happy the days shooting :). A nice guess (I’ll just claim good estimating skills) at a natural twilight long exposure with the water going to chrome.

The reflections on this still water were fantastic. The clouds streaming overhead made for nice diagonal patterns in both the sky and water. Plus there were nice ripples in the sand below the water to add extra interest.

With that shot in the can Gerry and I went a wandering nearby looking for additional compositions. I particularly liked this little pool of water in the rock. The shape I felt matched nicely with the sky overhead.

and lastly a crappy selfie before heading off to the outer rock shelf and the tessellated rocks there.
