Nothing beats getting up early in the morning to capture the start to the day. It’s hard to get out of bed at 5am on a Sunday morning when your body says “I want to sleep”, but it is so worth it.
I dragged myself out this morning to capture a few pictures of the sunrise at Wanda beach here at Cronulla. It was still dark and the streets very quiet as I made myself down to the beach.
Only a handful of cars parked in the carpark and everything was quiet except for the sound of the surf and a few early birds. It was beautiful and serene. For a moment I just stood there taking it all in breathing in the ocean air. I love that smell. It’s energizing.
The morning was a bit cloudy and a rolling sea mist was stuck in the hills. It looked eerie, like a slow moving animal floating quietly over the grassy sand hills. The beauty of nature always astounds me.
A few surfers were already in the water. So brave. Not sure I would like to be out there in the semi-dark, but they love their morning surf. And honestly, when you start to see the sun come up over the horizon you can understand why. Its a sight I never tire of.
Slowly people started to appear on the beach, walking, jogging or just checking out the surf. More and more cars arrived, parents with their young children getting ready for a beach competition. Stands were being set up and the surf club opened up for the day.
It was beautiful to watch. A great way to ease into the day. I have to start listening more to my heart that loves getting up early rather than my tired body who wants to sleep in 🙂
I took quite a few photos but also spent a lot of time just enjoying the moments.
Here are a few for you to hopefully enjoy also.
Happy Sunday to all
Certainly well worth getting up early Sal. Thanks for sharing your images.
