On the morning of the 17th September 2009, I was headed out to Terrigal beach on a lovely clear pre-dawn morning to photograph the conjunction of the Moon and Venus.
When the sky became too bright for the conjunction, I took advantage of the lovely colours of the dawn to capture some images of the sunrise and a few impromptu waterfalls as large waves crashed over the rock ledges near by.
The pre-dawn colours were magnificent, as they reflected off the surface water on the rock ledges.
Please continue reading to see the rest of the images from the session.
The images were captured with my Canon 20D and Sigma 17-70mm lens, and were all 3-exposure bracketed shots, processed as HDR (tonemap) using Photomatix. Final processing using Photoshop.
Last but not least, is when a rather large wave sent a rush of water over my usual trickling waterfall. And yes – my feet got rather wet during this shot 🙂
It was time to head home after this one 🙂
Thanks for reading.
