A lone yacht in the morning sunshine

I went to Manly beach again on Sunday morning to capture sunrise.  It was overcast at start, but luckily I ended up seeing the sun emerged.

The below photo was taken while I was waiting for a coffee shop to open for having my first cup to go with on my way back.

The clouds left the shapes unchanged and let morning light shed on the ocean, while the sole sailboat which I first noticed on the left slowly moved in to the center.

It was really nice coincidence to run into such a picturesque scene.

Dramatic clouds

Today is the last day of Daylight Saving Time in Sydney and I kicked my bum to start my day a bit earlier to photograph sunrise at a beach, because this is last chance for taking advantage of sunrise seen in ‘late’ time (now it’s at past 7am, but from tomorrow it should be at past 6 am).

So I went to Manly beach for it but unfortunately I could not see the moment where the sun popping up from the ocean as it was a little cloudy.  In stead, however, the sun showed me its face between layers of clouds lied over horizon, which produced beautiful ray of lights followed by.

This is why I can not stop photography.  There is always something to happen out there.  In the very beginning at the beach, I certainly did not see sunrise as I had wished, but it ended up because I saw another form of beautiful morning sky like below.

Well, usually I do not submit my participation twice for one subject of the challenge, but I will exceptionally allow myself to break my rule and make them my second entry for this week Weekly Photo Challenge:  Rise/Set (first entry is here).

I think these photos deserve it, and I hope you will enjoy them too..

Peeking ray of light in the morning

These are the snapshots of my lucky morning to witness this nice ray of light a couple of days ago.

At that time, it was not overcast but clouds continued building its form to the direction where the sun rising, and I think I saw this state rather longer than I had thought of being able to.  And it was like, as if the sun and clouds were competing against each other for to sit on a front position.

Well no, they did not compete against but they worked together to show us this beautiful ray of light, I believe.  🙂
