Well now, the forecast was for a burner sunrise and so I decided to go somewhere special to photograph it. I hadn’t been to Hyams this year because I hate crowds and it’s far and away the most popular beach in Jervis Bay, if not the Shoalhaven. But the tourists have left until the spring and so I found myself the first car in the carpark and the first person on the beach for the day. The sunrise was everything we hoped it would be – glorious long-lived smouldering skies and I greatly enjoyed photographing it all with my DSLR and my drone.
Hyams Beach does not have the whitest sand in the world, but it does have the 7th whitest sand in Australia. It’s an exceptionally popular beach on the western edge of Jervis Bay and is lovely if you get there before the world rocks up.
