This is how my day started.


Some mornings it can be a punish peeling out of bed before the sun rises. You’d think after 15 years of daily dawn photography I’d have it down. I’m human. I need a java hit to switch the brain into gear and steer me in the general direction of the beach.

As I rolled down the street and saw the beach at 5:50am, it looked pretty stunning with bright red clouds over Benny’s. Lucky aren’t we? Worth the pain of an early rise. After a few postcard-tripod shots I decided to swim’n’shoot as the waves looked nice. It’s a new south swell and Bondi is drawing every inch. The rips are manic but the waves were fantastic. I reckon this incoming tide will reveal more goodness. See you out there.
