McKell Park Brooklyn Sunrise Symphony, Brooklyn NSW – Movement Number Four 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…
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, 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 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. I am sooo pleased with this though, as it screams McKell park, Brooklyn and The Hawkesbury, and is so recognisable to all who live on the Sydney North Shore.
This, for me is the hero image of the morning. I now have my ‘McKell Park’ hero shot…
