One morning, I came to around 2am and had a look out of the bedroom window, and the sky was full of twinkling stars. Should be good for a morning shoot, thought I. So I woke, with the alarm, at 3:45 and drove to Terrigal. It’s sometimes difficult to tell how many clouds there are as you are driving as you should really be concentrating on the road, but I drove on, through the, erm, fog patches. No worries!!! I had done that before and arrived to a clear crisp sunrise. Ooooooh boy. Not today, sunshine, in fact quite the opposite, no sunshine at all! It was quite dark for so close before dawn, and the streetlights behind me were ringed with fog halos. As the light levels rose it was obvious there was fog ans sea mist all around. It kind of reminded me of my hometown of Great Yarmouth in England more than my adopted country.
I was pleased with the moodiness of the resulting pictures tho – even if they were not what I was hoping for. I used long shutter speeds, but I have only added a little shadow detail and a levels layer, apart from that straight out of the camera.
