I was up 90 minutes before sunrise on this particular morning and, like I always do, checked the satellite images to see what the cloud was doing. But for some reason I misread it and thought the blanket of cloud was low cloud (which is bad) rather than high cloud (which is good). So I sat on my bed flicking through my Instagram feed when I should have been on the road. About 45 minutes before sunrise I thought I’d have a look out of the window anyway, and that’s when I saw the colour. Well, let me tell you, it didn’t take me very long to get dressed and of down the road in the car to Shoalhaven Heads. Fortunately I caught the best of the colour and captured this glorious sunrise in photos and video.
Shoalhaven Heads Beach is towards the southern end of Seven Mile Beach, just before the start of the old Shoalhaven River mouth. It’s a fairly wild bit of beach as they go, but you can capture some great shots by including the arc of the beach heading north and south.
