Freelance Photographer

Narrabeen Aquatic Reserve

Woke up nice and early at 0430 to train at the gym at 0530 – i figured since sunrise was at 0647 i may as well pack my camera gear and head down to the beach for a shoot, allowing me ample time to drive down there, set up and have a chat to the people out exercising on such a lovely morning.  The weather was nice and warm, perfect for shooting – no chilly wind to knock the tripod around.

The one thing I noticed was how polite people were, I was taking up the entire walkway with my tripod and my f-stop bag splayed over the footpath, nobody seemed to mind much, they paused, then asked me if they could walk in front of the camera.  The guy who was walking down the walkway (the one in the shot) noticed I was getting a bit dismayed as he was right in my shot and wearing red which would have been hard to photoshop out and then make the pier look perfect again, so he hurried up and apologised when he got to the end – totally unnecessary, but so nice to know that the Northern Beaches is full of gorgeous people!

Oh and they had the audacity to tell me that I should have been down here yesterday as the sunrise was sweet as…. grrrr…. didn’t need to know that 🙂

I got loads of shots, but this was my favourite panoramic, will upload an individual shot later.
