Sunrise at Coledale Rock Shelf

Hey all, I woke up today to go and shoot Coledale beach, which is relatively close to where I live. I was at this location before, but never really explored it properly.
If you have never heard of Coledale before, it is a small sea side village about 18 kilometres north of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia.

The town has got a lot to offer for photographers and beach lovers. It sits on the Grand Pacific Drive and is surrounded by stunning laid back, quiet beaches on one side and imposing forest covered cliffs on the other.

When we got here this morning, the tide was already nearly half way up and my camera and I took a few big water splashes  from the waves smacking against the edge of the rocks.  Here are some of my favourites:
