McKell Park Sunrise Symphony, Brooklyn NSW – Movement Number Five out of Five Images
Something a little different to celebrate my ‘Hawkesbury Light – And a Black and White’ exhibition at the Dangar Island Depot. I will be posting five images that show how a sunrise changes from about 45 minutes to where the sun rises over the horizon. Or actually in this case didn’t…
Brooklyn Glory II
As a landscape photographer I get out and about a lot to take photos. I have to say, there are a lot of shoots that really do not make the cut. So you don’t get to see a lot of my endeavours. However, on this morning, through circumstance, there were three of us – myself, Good Lady Wife, and last, and least, our ‘ Sofa and Carpet Princess’ Maddie, our Maltese Shiatzu. I had plans to shoot at McKell Park on the Hawkesbury foreshore. For some reason, I have few images of McKell Park. As we drove toward Brooklyn the colour pink glowed oh-so-faintly on the clouds around 30 minutes before sunrise.
A great omen. However, as the light levels rose, the colour faded. And so it continued, colour, no colour, as per the previous four shots. A great omen. However, as the light levels rose, the colour faded. And so it continued, colour, no colour, colour, then…. well, as you can see, a whole lot of colour. It wasn’t quite the 360 bomb, but nearly. And I have to say, I didn’t listen to myself, and ran around a bit too much, taking too many variants. Should have stuck to one area – just to feature McKell Park baths – and taken maybe two-three variants maximum. My wife and dog ‘enjoyed’ the morning cool in a more sedentary manner.. at least she had the coffee luxury This is a variant on yesterday’s image with lots of use of the corners for aid composition.
