Lake Macquarie Sunrise


Lake Macquarie in NSW, Australia, twice the size of Sydney Harbour, is the largest permanent salt water lake in the Southern Hempisphere and has a 174km foreshore.  

Popular for boating, fishing and water recreational sports, it is very picturesque.

I was at Booragul the other morning to catch the sunrise over the lake.  It's an amazing place early in the morning; pelicans and other water birds hunting around for a spot of breakfast, rowers and canoeists out and about in the low mist, boats creaking on their anchor ropes and swaying in the gentle early morning breeze.  We'd had some rain in the previous days and the warmer morning was bringing the moisture out as low lying mist which dissipated as soon as it was hit by the Suns' rays.

The lakes' surface was as smooth as glass and I was able to get some wonderful reflections off it!
