Very early morning start to capture the beauty of sunrise.

It was 5am the birds were awake and singing their joy at the start of a new day. The lorikeets with their  chatter almost drowned out by the kookaburra family’s infectious and unmistakable, manic laughter, the raucous crows and sweet warble of the magpies all herald a new day is dawning as the grey light filtered through the blinds.

Looking out at the pink light spreading from the horizon we jumped on our bikes to race down to the beach to catch the sunrise over the ocean. It was pure magic.

I would like to share with you our early morning, 2 hour, photo shoot at Burleigh Beach. I took 243 photos. Jack took 295 photos….

It took quite a while deciding what to put in this post. I hope you enjoy your early morning stroll with us…

  2. It’s so unthinkable for U.S. coastal byways to look so utterly wild yet have a skyline so close. Magical!

  3. Pure magic.
    Loved every photo and savoured what it must have been like. I live inland and miss the sea a lot.
