After the beautiful sunrise this morning I was hoping I might score a nice sunset too, as the high-level cirrus cloud looked like it would stick around. Unfortunately some lower level cloud on the western horizon blocked the sun as it got lower, so I didn’t quite get the specatcular colours of the morning’s sunrise. Still, the warm light on the clouds was quite beautiful looking SE towards Lennox Point.
Weather models were forecasting some high level cloud around dawn today, but with my limited knowledge it’s always hard to know exactly what cloud type will form. After much trial and error over the last couple of years I’ve realised cirrus, those high-level, whispy looking clouds, work best for sunrises at boulders beach. Driving to the beach at dawn I was pretty excited to see a large patch of cirrus perfectly positioned for sunrise and I wasn’t disappointed. Definitely the most beautiful sunrise I’ve seen this year.
The weather models were forecasting a bit of high cloud around at dawn this morning so I set the alarm for 5.30am and headed off down to the lake to see if I could score some nice light. Though not quite as spectacular as I thought it might be, it was still a really beautiful and tranquil scene, mozzie swarm aside (glad I packed repellant)!
