I make an effort to head out to photograph the local landscape every day. Quite often I will head out for sunrise (usually at one of the local beaches) and, if the skies are looking good I’ll head out for sunset too. In a sense these collections are like photo diaries too as I often make note of anything that catches my eye.
We’re in semi-lockdown here but you’re allowed out if it’s your job. And my job is landscape photography. So, while staying the hell away from other people, I headed out to the beach to photograph what turned out to be a lovely sunrise.
It’s two years since I was last at the Three Views bush-walk near Kangaroo Valley but the landscape is very different since the catastrophic bushfires that swept through here two months ago.
We live in interesting times, all over the world but particularly here in Australia. Bushfires, floods and now a pandemic. But you know what – the sun still rises, the critters still go about their day and the earth spins around the sun.
It has been a little while since I shot a sunrise on Seven Mile Beach so I set the alarm and headed down for 6am.
