Moving house and settling into a new town can be very time consuming. But I have finally gotten off my butt - I set the alarm clock earlier this morning and headed to Gerroa for sunrise. Gerroa is a magical little town just 5 minutes down the road from Gerringong, with a tidal estuary and a long beach (funnily enough called Seven Mile beach).
I thought I had left it too late when I saw the pink glow from the car, but luckily I had a couple of good spots in mind, so it didn't take me too long to get setup...
I've been experimenting a bit with my post-processing techniques, and I hope to share some more details about that soon. But I'd love to know what you think in the comments below!
I then popped my new 400mm lens on and started wading up the river (lucky it was low tide…) to see what locals were out and about.
This fella is actually the reason I came down here - I've been seeing these egrets hunting in the river as I've driven past a few times, and it seems I was in luck this morning! I believe this one is a great eastern egret, but they can be a little difficult to differentiate from the other egret sub species.
That's all for now… not a bad morning's work I'd say! Looking forward to your comments :)
