Canon 5D camera and Canon 600 f4 IS lens. Exposure Details: 1/1250 second @ f7.1 ISO 400.

There’s little better in life than the glory of a beautiful sunrise. I was fortunate indeed to be on the beach at Moggs Creek, along the Great Ocean Road, to witness and photograph this wondrous sight.

I made the image with the huge and seriously heavy Canon 600mm f4 IS lens, firmly mounted onto a heavy aluminium tripod that I’d pushed into the sand for extra stability. A fast shutter speed of 1/1250 second was sufficient to freeze the fast breaking wave, while an aperture of f7.1 provided sufficient depth of field to ensure the image was sharp from foreground through to the background.

Image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop CS5.

My career in photography started over 30 years ago. While it’s never been an easy road, photography has provided me with great joy and introduced me to people and places to which I would not have otherwise been exposed. It has been my passport into the world of sight and sound and beyond, into that special realm that exists outside of our everyday experience.

Enjoy your photography and push yourself towards ever-broader horizons.
