This morning i headed out with the Sundance crew for a Sunrise at Catherine Hill Bay, about half an hour drive south of Newcastle. It is a lovely little coastal town and the oldest continuously settlement in the City of Lake Macquarie. It originally served as a base for coal mining for the New Wallsend Company from around 1873. The iconic wharf is about 200m in length was originally used to load coal onto the ships, but it is now closed.
We had some fun with fire twirling before getting down to the serious business of shooting the gorgeous sunrise that popping some lovely colours over the horizon for us. The wharf is a bit of favourite spot for photographers around the area and its not hard to understand why. There are some concerns that the wharf will be demolished due to some zoning/planning approvals that have been granted in the area. It would be such a shame to see an historic icon disappear in the name of ‘progress’.
