It’s rare that I’m up early enough in the day to see a sunrise, but this weekend I headed to the Southern coast for a BBQ and drinks and tried to make use of the chance to get up and take some early morning shots. I’m not a morning person, so getting to bed just after 2am, and getting up just a few hours later does not make me the happiest of bunnies – especially with the prospect of a long cliff walk on the agenda later in the day.
Still, I got up and headed out of the hotel early to see what kind of light this dawn would bring.
It wasn’t the greatest sunrise I’ve ever seen, even if my experience of them is limited. It was nice though, and I enjoyed getting a few shots from various angles.
The beach was pretty much empty. A few young couples were sat on the pebbles, having chosen to sit there and view the dawn rather than go home and slip into bed after a night out on the town. I also met one other photographer, James Lucas, down there. James has some excellent long exposure shots with city architecture sitting right alongside images from the seaside like we were taking today – I recommend you go ahead and check out his work.
