Boy oh boy was it chilly on the beach this morning. 0.5ºc according to my car’s thermometer. The only good thing about it was that there was virtually no wind – if there had been I probably would have stayed in the car and flown the drone or something because my shorts/crocs combo wasn’t cutting it. Anyway, as always I had a peek behind the bedroom blinds before heading out so I knew there was unlikely to be any backlit cloud. It was still a fun sunrise though and there’s always something interesting to photograph. Shout-out to the two young ladies that came down to the beach in their jammies (and wearing a doona initally!).

Couldn’t quite see what this guy’s deal was, but he sure seemed to be rugged up well!

My old mate the sea eagle on his morning fly by. Nearly missed him because he was flying a bit lower than usual.


The sun has got his hat on, hip hip hip hooray.


Morning ladies. I’m guessing the urge to stay in bed this morning was pretty strong!


Down in the dunes you could almost believe it was warm.


Day breaks across a fairly glass-like ocean. Was supposed to be a big swell running but it sure as shit wasn’t in evidence on Seven Mile.


These two dogs were having a rare old time of it.


Mmmm – dreamy smooth bokeh with the prime lens.
