In photography you can’t recreate a sunrise like this, you just have to be in the right place at the right time. I love the warmth on your skin as the sun rises over the ocean in Australian, it’s an indescribable feeling- tangible yet not. I awoke early this morning and began the drive to Watson’s Bay in Sydney and was a little dubious of how good of a sunrise I was going to get as the sky on the horizon was pretty empty. I don’t know if you’ve ever noticed but all the good sunrise and sunset shots have interesting clouds in them. So if I am heading to a location and the sky is not that interesting I may cancel the shoot and do something else photography orientated. But on this morning I got lucky as around 10-15 minutes before the light show a set of clouds swept in from the north and lit up this famous cliff seascape in Sydney, Australia.
