Australian sunrise

As I'm sure you'll discover over the coming weeks, I really enjoyed walking the beach of Queensland at sunrise while I was at Turnfest 2012. Seascapes are wonderful subjects for sunrise and sunset because the light, wave, and cloud combinations are constantly changing. Thus, it's possible to shoot dozens of photos and each one is very different, even though they are all of the same subject.

In wood turning, I always lecture about doing a series to refine a form or a style. The same thing goes for photography - shooting the same subject over and over again until the eye begins to "see" the frame of reality, or, at least, an interpretation of reality.
