Lower McKell Park Sunrise Symphony, Brooklyn NSW – Movement Number Three 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 Lower 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, and then… some lovely oranges in the sky, to offset the deep dark blues of the pre-dawn. I used the shape of the Lower McKell Park baths enclosure to lead the eye into the heart of the image.
