Back on the Sunrise saddle

Well it’s been awhile, aside from that crazy summit sunrise in the Warrumbungles at Easter, i really cant recall when i last shot a sunrise. Well today i got back on that saddle as they say.

The location – back at the Ocean Baths. I arrive just before first light and it was already clear there was a lot of cloud on the horizon, so it wasn’t looking good for the sunrise, but the swells whilst not as big as last night were still there so all was not lost.

I chatted to a few mates before setting the camera up – i was up now, may as well try and capture a few shots 🙂

The swell behind the pumphouse

No matter how many times you shoot at the baths, you just get drawn to the canoe pool, and this morning was no different.

The swell had started to soften but it was still coming over the edge

and back came the swell

At this point i was ready to pack up and head home, as there wasn’t much happening until i looked North and there was some lovely golden light shining on down, so i hot footed it back to the baths.

By the time i came around, there were already two surfers in the water

These two considered their options for a while

The waves weren’t for the inexperienced
