Some would consider it madness, but I find it refreshing. When I am on leave and away from the rush of the day to day, I like to wake early and head out with camera gear. Typically for me this may mean driving for an hour to a location, then perhaps even bush walking for another hour or so – just to be somewhere before sunrise. So that means some very early starts to the day!
The tranquility and peace are wonderful and nurturing. The light can be wonderful at that time, and the opportunities for photography are only limited by your imagination.
Its great when you can come back with a wonderful image, but it’s the process of being there, being connected to nature and to the world as it awakens and evolves that really lights my fire. After a good morning of photography I’m always inspired for the day.
This particular photo was actually taken after sunset (so no early start required) from the beach in Broome, Western Australia. A beautiful and unique locations with superb colors!
