McKell Park Sunrise Symphony, Brooklyn NSW – Movement Number Two 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…
Take a Breath
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.
This is the second of the images of the day. You can double check against yesterday’s image – at this point it was a 50/50 bet whether the morning would glow or fizz… Still a very workable shot, but not glorious. Tune in tomorrow for another exciting installment. I tried to include more foreground and give extra depth with the grass. To show more of McKell Park.
