Sunrise viewed from the house I was staying at in Ballina last weekend. Perched atop a hill overlooking the ocean, it had one of the most beautiful aspects of any property I’ve stayed in. The sunrise didn’t have much cloud to catch the colour, but the view itself was perfect and the orange light speaks for itself.
I’ve framed the sun against strands from some grassy bush to add a little interest. The reflection is in the river running through the narrow strip of land between the hills and the seashore, and I like how the underexposure has given it a texture of its own. Shallow depth of field (wide aperture) has thrown the background out of focus and kept the nearest strands nice and sharp.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
