Pastel Sunrise on a Wind-Blown Seven Mile Beach

I checked the forecast before going to bed and didn’t have great expectations for sunrise, so didn’t bother setting the alarm. What I didn’t know was that Catherine was going running early and did set the alarm so I was up half an hour before sunrise anyway. I checked the sky and thought there was a good chance for a splash of colour, so headed down to my local beach which was wind-blown, deserted and as lovely as ever.

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.
