Paul says…

When it comes to early morning photography, jet-lag and screwing up your body clock by having a “mid afternoon nap” can really help!

Having spent a fantastic (summery) Christmas Day in Sydney, I found I couldn’t sleep at all the following night, so at 4:00am I decided enough was enough. I got up, cleaned my filters, and headed down to The Rocks to see if there might be a cool sunrise.

It didn’t look good – clouds were getting thicker and the forecast was for rain later in the day. It turns out I picked the right morning though, not only did we get some lovely colour in the sky, but the fact it was the day after Christmas meant the early morning ferries weren’t operating so frequently. Normally, images of the Sydney Opera House are plagued by moving water – I’d accidentally managed to get the one day of the year when Circular Quay was actually quiet in the morning.

For some, Boxing Day is the day to lay in bed until lunchtime and nurse a hangover. Granted, I didn’t completely escape the hangover, but I must say I’m glad I dealt with it at the side of the harbour instead of missing this amazing view that morning!
