I was out collecting some dusk skies for my sky library, to potentially act as replacements should the sky on a scheduled shoot not be up to scratch. That same quality of twilight that can make a property ‘pop’ also looked great at the beach.
Rising early to catch the sunrise, it was easy to give in to disapointment on seeing the cloud cover.
But I’ll leave you to extract your own message from this shot.
Technically we’re over the hump, past the shortest day and on the downward slide toward Summer. I’ve already mentioned that I’ve noticed the sun rising that smidgin earlier, and it also just feels a little warmer. Of course, this early in the piece, it could easily turn chilly next week. Of course ‘chilly’ is a relative term. Being just 26 degrees from the equator we’re hardly expecting snow drifts any time soon. But just to keep spirits alive, here’s a summery shot from the vault of me and she just minutes from home.
OK – I didn’t actually make it down to the beach this morning, so this one is from a few weeks ago. But it is historic in being the first dawn portrait I made. It helped that Greg & Steve are friends and were nice enough to humour my request.
