I met Chris and pooch this morning. The Stumer’s lagoon had broken through and was flowing to the sea so we hung out down at the water’s edge where the wet sand reflected the dawn colours.
It’s already noticeable that the sun is rising that little bit earlier each day. Which means I will also have to be rising steadily earlier each time I want to see the sunrise. 1st Aug – 0630. 1st Dec – 0445! OMG 8-o
Today’s photo is not from the vault. It was actually taken this morning at Stumer’s Creek, fast becoming my favourite location. It is popular with walkers and their dogs (joggers don’t stop for a photo), the lagoon beautifully mirrors the colours in the sky and I can set up within 20m of my car.
It was gratifying to see The SC Daily and Coolum News pick up on my dawn portrait story. Of course I should have been up and at ’em soon after publication to maintain the momentum, but had 2 late nights playing with my band The Remedy. So rising at 5:30 was not going to happen. But I will be at Stumer’s Creek early Monday morning.
Stumer’s…doggie heaven! It’s a great spot to engage people and their pets. The pooches usually come and break the ice first. And if they bolt past, there’s always the squeaky toy!
