sunrise days

8th September 2014, Beadnell Bay, 6:30am

A beautiful dawn reflected on the beach


10th September 2014, Low Newton, 7am

The sunrise was OK, nothing special, and then a spectacular ray of light shot up through the clouds


10th September 2014, Newton Point, 4pm

Is this an Indian Summer? The summer's never stopped - it just seems to have gone and on and on...


Daisy had some BBQ charcoal in her mouth. It probably tasted of sausage fat!


Daisy and Grace. Legs-a-go-go with Grace's new poodle-cut.

Another misty sunrise. I found myself imagining this as a subject Van Gogh could have painted beautifully. I think the waves remind me of his brushstrokes.

autumn comes around

5th September 2014, Embleton Bay, 6am

The mist sat low over the sea for the 2nd day in a row. The sunrise was hidden from view...


...but then there was a 2nd dawn as the sun rose out of the fog and into the watery sky above.




There was an autumn feel to the morning with the mist the turning ferns all around. (As I write this afternoon it's back to summer.)

High on the dunes watching the last of the visitors leave the beach to the beautiful evening light.

Evening walk up to Long Nanny and back - the light was beautiful all round.

free running

25th August 2014, Newton Links, 7am

Beautiful morning. The terns are away off their nests and the livestock isn't on the dunes yet. This is a narrow window of opportunity for off-lead Daisy dog-walking on Beadnell Bay.

what to photograph when the sun's out

19th August 2014, Embleton Bay, 9am

Cathy's PhotoWorkshop and we wandered around in the bright sun talking about photography and taking a few photographs...


The chilly NW wind was whipping the waves into a boiling froth of big breakers...


The wind had blown sand into the cracks in the rocks then blown the excess away leaving sharp patterns.



I took this picture first of the fern frond backlit by the sun...


...but on closer inspection we could see these capillary patterns in the fronds.  Very beautiful.


Striking shadows on the decking...
