Sunrises. They can be flat and a pastel coloured version of boring. They can be beautiful. They just seem to happen at really inconvenient hours! Yeah I sound like a crybaby but seriously, I will never be a fan of getting up at 4.45am to catch a sunrise on the South West coast of Australia. Too bloody early for me. Unless the particular location has a coffee maker. Enough rambling. Glad I did the sunrise in Dunsborough. I met Christian Fletcher and True North Mark at Wyadup Rocks at 5.30am for a sunrise shoot. Them in their white 4WDs. We in our white rental Toyota Corolla (somewhat red after some dirt roads, please do not tell rental company!). We are ready!
Wyadup rocks proves a really nice location, lots of fun rocks to play with composition wise and some nice waves crashing ashore to stand in! I like to get up and close with the elements, so spend most of the time standing in the waves – getting soaked and also trying my best to get in the way of Mark and Christian shots! We had a fun sunrise shoot but the light was ordinary and I reckon the following image is the best of my not all that great sunrise shots. I like the wave action here and the view to pastel coloured infinity, Wyadup rocks pointing the way.
And finally; my friend shot an image of me – I am in front – and Christian Fletcher – standing in the back – (I am sure SuperMark was off rock climbing somewhere!) at Wyadup. Thanks guys, was great fun!
Now; the following day I went back for sunset shots and that was another league altogether, off the scale – more to come!
