Waking Up

Having been raining a whole week in Sydney area, it was finally stopped on Friday evening. So I decided to go to the east coast to take seascape pictures on the next day morning. I left home at 4.30am, drove one hour to get to Maroubra beach. It was a very low tide period. This gave me an opportunity to stand this location without much risk.

By the time the sky started to change, I made a number of shots on the foreground water traces, and then I tilted my camera and pointed to the sky to make other several shots. The final image was basically made from two shots around the same time, and stitched together so that it contained what I really wanted: the dramatic rock/water foreground as well as the changing sky.
