  1. Just a couple. I woke early this morning but by the time ablutions (mine and Tom's) were done, it was too late to get to beach or lake for what looked like a magic sunrise. I caught it as it was coming up over the farmland nearby (K-5 + FA43)

    I was persistent, though, and decided to head in to the beach in any case, just in case something decent would present itself. (X100)

    And I liked the reflections in the wet sand. (XZ-1)

    You certainly picked the right morning - simply beautiful. How wonderful to see this first thing, and I'm guessing it's not too far away from where you live.

  5. Thanks, Chuck! Yeah, can't help myself, since I got the Lowepro Passport sling, I take nearly everything with me :) Failed to use the F550 or the GRD3 today :)

    LOL! thank you, Pelao...

    The first shot is about 2 minutes away by car, and the rest about 20 minutes :) I'm lucky to live in what is effectively an extremely large country town, or a very small city, depending on how you look at it. I live close to the edge of town, near the bush, but the beach and city are no distance at all. I could not live in the kind of place I do now, in Sydney, and get anywhere near a beach in 20 minutes. Its only 10 minutes to the lake, as well. I count myself very lucky.

    Someone got it wrong, sunrise and sunset should last for 3 hours each.
    Nice shots.

    As much as I want to live in the middle of nowhere, I will always need to live within a 30 minute drive of a body of water......and the closer the better.

  10. Mother Nature at her almost best. What I missed was a really deep burgundy followed by a burgundy/purple/pink. That was something else. It happens so fast, though, and I really didn't want houses in the shot, as I would have got, if I had taken the shot from home.
