Breaking Dawn by DrewHopper Breaking Dawn by DrewHopper
Sunrise - Shellies Beach, Angourie, NSW.

Myself and *eye-of-tom (awesome guy by the way) were up in time to catch sunrise. The others were too hungover to lift an eyelid. Their loss really, although we were disappointed that there were no clouds. Funny thing is on the way home all the clouds started to form, bit of a kick in the guts.

No clouds but your photo is still nice =)
In fact, I didn't get your point about having clouds... Do you think they make the picture better ?

Spewin the cloud gods didn't come to the party but props for getting up early... Even if you New South Welshpersons get an extra hour to sleep in with daylight savings!

Iluka/Yamba/Angourie/Brooms Head/Sandon = Magic area. If it doesn't grow too much I wanna retire to Brooms Head. Ahhh if only!

Sorry, ranting...nice work too!

I can feel your pain for the lack of clouds, but that's a really beautiful, and sleek looking sky with the gradient formed. Very rich, and smooth, no noise present at all there, very nice work as always Drew. Some great light along the water in the foreground rocks as well, top notch.

I can almost smell the air in this shot. Fantastic time of day - rarely seen by me 'cause I go to bed around 2 am normally - not 'cause I'm hung over, I'm just a night owl. You're complaining about so few clouds... try moving the horizon in the shot a lot higher, making an almost square shot, and it strengthens this photo imho - which really doesn't count anyway! I should go camping near the beach for a break soon.
