Into the lightAbout this photograph
29 May 2012, Bronte Beach, Sydney, AustraliaBronte Beach is a very popular Sydney beach for locals, situated just around the corner from the world famous Bondi Beach.This image was taken at the beach pool where early morning swimmers brave the cold to exercise as surfers rush past on their way to the ocean.This was a very special morning.Incredible sunrise light and a rushing surfer come together to create a dynamic photograph.Captured with a wide angle lens to bring the viewer into the action to feel like they are sitting on the gorgeous natural stone in the foreground.A slightly slower shutter speed enables the feeling of movement with the deliberately slightly blurred surfer.Read more Read less
