The forecast looked pretty damn fine for this particular May morning and so I got up a bit earlier than usual and headed over to the Kiama Coast Path at the Gerringong end. By the time I’d parked at the lagoon the sky was already showing some impressive colour and so I double-timed it round to the first bay. I fancied I’d get a better shot down on the rock shelf, so rock-hopped in my Crocs down to the ocean edge where a decent swell was popping wave after wave over the edge. It turned out to be a great sunrise and I got some awesome keepers to add to the collection.


I always do a kind of test shot as soon as I get anywhere. In this case I put the tripod down next to the lagoon and shot a full 30 second exposure. Loving those reflections.


This is the inside edge of the rock shelf at the bay – I was hoping for more reflection here and when I didn’t get it I knew I had to get closer to the edge.



One of my favourite shots of the morning. Just a total colour blast on the tesselated rocks.


Some nice breakers rolled in – this was a fairly short exposure to get movement in the wave.



I decided to dodge some splashes. This one came pretty close.



And this one came closer. Yes, I got very wet and so did the camera.


Sun well and truly up by now.


Beautiful golden light shining on the rocks.


Last shot of the morning before walking back to the car.
