52 Pics – Week 1 – Diamond Beach sunrise

I thought I’d try one of those 52 Picture projects this year – where I add a photo each week, every week, for the whole year. What better way to start than with a nice sunrise image. I took this one while we were spending a few days relaxing up at Diamond Beach, on the NSW Central Coast. With plenty of cloud around there were some good opportunities to snap away as the sun peeked through the gaps. This one was a merge of three different exposures and I tweaked the colour a little to bring out the orange in the clouds. Worth getting up at 5.30am to see. There a couple of other pics from the morning over on my Flickr page.
