Terrigal Sunrise in May 2011

On the 15th May I headed out to Terrigal at 5am for three reasons – a) to photograph the conjunction, b) to capture some sunrise images, and c) to run up and down the skillion as part of the BBMA prep cycle for the new round of candidates.

These photos are from (b) – the sunrise after the conjunction. Unfortunately there were no clouds in the sky which made the sky a bit dull but there was a few photographers there that morning, and one of them had climbed up on the rocks on the left of the bay area and his silhouette made for a nice scene with the glow of the rising sun.

A little earlier, these shots were taken of one of the rock shelves which had waves crashing against and over it all morning. The sea was actually quite rough for this part of the bay. I ended up with wet feet and ankles a few times while I was perched out on a rock and a large wave came through.
