Cronulla Sunrise

Place: Cronulla

Where: Sydney

Spring in Sydney… and a long weekend to boot.

With the start of daylight saving it makes it just a little bit easier to get out of bed early in the morning. This morning’s sunrise set a beautiful golden sky.

Plenty of surfers in the water and people doing laps in the rockpools.

  • Sydney Sunset Place: Kirribilli Where: Sydney I’ve been to Kirribilli plenty of times over the years – it’s a great spot to capture the sun setting behind the bridge at certain times of the year. This evening, there was very little cloud so only a few good photos. Mostly time lapse, to get the smooth water and the reflection of the lights on the harbour. This was taken during COVID-19 – and you might just see a special message on one of the hotels in the city.
  • Cronulla Sunrise – March 2020 Place: Cronulla Where: Sydney It was just as Sydney was starting to emerge from lockdown that I ventured down to Cronulla early one morning. Just a few pics from a beautiful, golden morning as the surfers hit the water.
  • Beijing Place: Beijing Where: China The planets had aligned on the earlier part of our trip – with a White Christmas in Europe, and then being spoilt with the Northern Lights. So our brief stopover in Beijing on the way home was always a bit of an afterthought. But again, the planets aligned. Snow in the centre of Beijing is pretty rare, happening only a handful of times over the last few years. Then having fine weather so we could see a crisp blue sky, not the brown haze that Beijing is so famous for. And then squeezing in our […]
  • Darwin Place: Darwin Where: Northern Territory A short work trip took me to Darwin in September 2019. The flight was longer than the actual workshop we hosted – and given the meeting was on a Friday, I took the opportunity to hang around and see Darwin. I had never been there before and this trip ticks off the final capital city in Australia for me. After work, I walked around town and took in the Waterfront area where there is a swimming pool surrounded by sand. I’ve been assured they’ve made it crocodile safe, considering the Harbour is teaming with […]
  • Little Willow Farmstay Place: Little Willow Farmstay Where: Gangbanang NSW Drive for about two hours west of Sydney and you’ll come to a little place called Kanimbla Valley, just across the river from the more famous Megalong Valley. Here you’ll find the Little Willow Farm Stay. We found it on Airbnb, and booked in a weekend away for a birthday celebration with some friends. The farm stay is in a beautiful location, where you can only see a few lights out on the horizon of a night time – and a million stars up above. The accomodation itself is nestled […]
  • Vivid Sydney Place: Sydney Where: Sydney It’s become a tradition – trekking into the city on a cold wintery night, carrying all the camera gear and tripod, battling crowds and trying to find a good spot for photos. This year was no different! Just a few spots for snaps this year.
  • Byron Bay Place: Byron Bay Where: New South Wales Byron Bay is renowned for its long beaches, long surf breaks and… well, let’s face it. Backpackers, hippies and pot. We took a long weekend away here in February 2019. To break up the extraordinarily long drive (made even longer by the never ending roadworks on the Pacific Highway), we stopped in Coffs Harbour for a night. Up early in the morning, it was down to the Coffs Jetty for sunrise. Then, like a John Denver song, it was on the road again heading north towards Byron Bay and our Air […]
  • Sydney Storm Place: Sydney Harbour Where: Sydney They had been warning about the potential for severe storms for a couple of days. Throughout the day, the humidity was building, along with the heat. You could feel the storm brewing. It was amazing it rolling in from the north-west of Sydney, big and dark on the horizon, and with lightning flashing across the sky. The skies opened up and we rode out the worst of it while sheltering in the car.
