10 degrees – Coalcliff

Coalcliff sepia tone

Hey guys

Today, I really struggled to wake up for the sunrise. My plan was to go to the Cathedral Rocks at Kiama (1hr 15min drive) , but I am so glad I changed my mind and went to Coalcliff (30min drive) instead. The sky was cloudless and a little boring, and the wind sooooo cold!!

Anyhow, here are couple of shots I took this morning:

5 Quick Landscape Tips (for anyone)

1. Best time to take photos is early morning or late afternoon (avoid the midday sun)
2. Look for interesting foregrounds ( include subject)
3. Think about rule of thirds – google “rule of thirds”
4. Keep your horizon straight
5. Avoid empty spaces unless you are after simplicity…

I think If its as cold as this morning next weekend  I will have to stay in bed =)
Depends If I will have withdrawl symptoms after the next weeks work

Have a great week everyone
