My Sunday Photo for this week is from another stunning Sydney Sunday. It’s hard to call it “Winter” when the temperature reaches 27 degrees Celsius, so I’m going with A Little Taste of Spring.
The forecast had promised this perfect day all week, and it really didn’t disappoint. We planned to make the most of it, so we got out fairly early and headed deep into the Sutherland Shire. Our destination, Cronulla Beach.
When we arrived, the Cronulla area was already teeming with people. However, we quickly found a parking space and set off for a walk. After a cheeky bacon and egg roll and coffee from a small café, we headed down to the beach. Hannah had a great time in the sand. She found some seaweed and studied it intently. She also took great pleasure in walking and falling down on the soft, uneven surface of the beach. Click on each photo to see it in all its glory!
It was a stunning day to be out and about. A little taste of Spring after some fairly cold (by Sydney standards) Winter’s days.
The Week’s My Sunday Photo is a flashback. It’s called Cronulla Baths Sunrise.
I haven’t had much time to get out and about with the camera this week, so I’m cheating and throwing in a flashback. Those of you familiar with my blog might remember that in April I posted a My Sunday Photo called Staring At The Sun. It was taken on a sunrise trip to Cronulla, in which I attempted to capture a photo for Emma’s birthday. Ultimately I succeeded in that goal and we have the photo hanging on our wall at home.
This photo is one of the ‘contenders’. I managed to shoot several decent panoramas, each capturing a slightly different aspect of the wonderful Cronulla baths and South Cronulla beach (click on picture to see it in all its glory!).
I like the way that this one shows some human activity at the baths. I admire (and am slightly jealous of) those regular visitors who make the sunrise trip to the baths for a swim. If you look carefully, you can see one person making his way over to the baths, while another is already swimming in the otherwise still water.
I also like the cloud formation in the sky. It’s slightly ominous, as if the beautiful start to the morning may quickly be consumed by a wild storm.
My Sunday Photo for this week is a snapshot of a perfect Winter’s day in Sydney
We woke up this morning and decided to take full advantage of a perfect day. We headed to an excellent playground next to one of Sydney’s best beaches. Hannah had a play on the equipment, then we sat on the beach to have some lunch. There were plenty of surfers in the water, enjoying some fantastic conditions. A few seagulls came over to say ‘hello’ (although I think they were more interested in whatever Hannah dropped).
