Redhead Dawn

I had been craving to rise and capture the brilliant colours that make a Sunrise!  Mind you, when I looked at that clock and saw the time, I did have second thoughts and, considered rolling over and simply just going back to sleep!

But, the early morning rise was well worth it!  Brilliant fiery colours abounded in the sky and reflected back off the water.  Rocks gave great texture, shape and silhouette.  Even seagulls walked on a wall of fire, reflected from the Sun off the wet sand!

As the Sun rose higher it's golden light was reflected in the water and it appeared that the surfers were catching golden waves of fire as they rode them into the beach!

This is Redhead Beach in Newcastle, Australia; one of my favourite beaches.  It has wonderful sand dunes, crashing waves to catch with a body board and, numerous rocks that reflect the pounding power of Poseidon!

I have been playing around with the presentation of my photos and the inclusion of a watermark.  There are some changes; the inclusion of a dark gray or a white border and, a bevelled edge on photos.

I hope you enjoy this set as much as I did capturing the images!   If you do, please don't hesitate to leave a comment!

Lurv to all
