All the benefits of this morning are due to a great suggestion from my hubby.
I’m away at the beach with my family for a few days and my poor hubby is left home alone working. When we were chatting on the phone last night I was telling him how I went for an evening walk last night and took photographs of the sunset. His suggestion: wouldn’t it be cool if I also got up and photographed the sunrise?
Why yes it would be cool. However there’s the fact that I haven’t got up for the sunrise in months! But then I looked it up and the sunrise for today wasn’t until 7.40am. Well that’s not too bad. However there is the point that I have to be awake, up out of bed, dressed and down at the sunset by 7.40am. Where would be the best spot to watch the sunset around here…I’m thinking from the Queenscliff pier. So I set my alarm for 7.10am and decided I would just see what happened.
In the end I got up just in time to get dressed and get down to the pier for the sunrise. Although it wasn’t a true sunrise; there was a lot of cloud cover blocking the view but the sun did peek through for some cool photos.
Additional bonus: there were quite a few cool birds around too!
