Wetland Sunrise

After taking a late train home from Sydney after a function and arriving home only a few hours before sunrise, i thought why not! So with the alarm set and a few hours of drifting sleep we headed off to the Hunter Wetlands Centre at Shortland (Newcastle, NSW) with the Sundance group.

It took a little while for me to get moving (and thinking) and just in too, as the colour started to sweep across the pond as the sun rose above the horizon.

I turned around and took a longer exposure picture of the welcome centre

Once the colour of the sunrise had disappeared we focused on the black swan family paddling around the pond – the little cygnets are so fluffy and cute!

Once we had had our fill of the little swan family we headed off around the walking trails to see what else we could find.

There are quite a few trails to explore and i think when i am not dead tired on my feet we will head back again
