Went walking with Darcy. Early yesterday morning. Darcy had quite easily convinced me to meet him at 5.00AM to photograph the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. I have not been on a photographic excursion with Darcy for a while so I thought, “Bugger it, why not?” I was awake well before sparrow’s fart, had a(…)

Sunrise over the Pacific

One morning some time back I had the opportunity to photograph a sunrise. I was at North Wollongong Beach. The sun rises over the Pacific Ocean, our eastern horizon. I was pushing the limit with exposures, concerned I would burn the living daylights out of the old Sony digital camera that I was using. Well,(…)

Meteorological majesty

Meteorological majesty

Back in August as I was driving along my street towards my home I noticed that the clouds in the west looked icy as the sun was setting. As soon as I arrived home I grabbed my camera and began photographing the clouds as the sun sank behind the horizon. In winter is not that(…)
