Breaking Dawn


I arrived at Tathra Beach well after dark and camped overnight in the reserve.
As I tracked to the beach at dawn, the day's first photo op had me hastily reaching for the fish.

Did you stay until the sun was up a bit more?

Mark, Beag' - images that followed some minutes later looked like this. I marked them down for poor composition.
Some like this were spoiled by hexagonal sun refraction (if that's what it's called). And no amount of dodgy pp could remove it.

Re: Breaking Dawn

Nice! It's a nice area down there (a bit of a regular for Victorians to come to for holidays). Let us know when you reach Tilba Tilba. No I'm not there, but it would be interesting to see how alternate it still is.

I didn't pass through Tilba on this occasion, but did so during 2015.

Thanks Mark. The sun supports what is otherwise a weak picture. With my own work I'm picky, I know!
