Dawn Walk on the Beachfront
Posted By: Bramela, 10-10-2008, 04:19 PM

A few shots I caught this moening as I went for a walk along the beachfront and harbour, Newcastle Australia.

# This is an exact replica of Capt'n James Cook's Endeavour (1770) built in 1988 for Australia's bicentennary.

I love the colors in the first and last shots. The first shot is just fantastic - very dramatic, and I like the three small ships in it.

That's the kind of scene that could actually turn me into a morning person. Stunning.

Thanks for those comments. Incidentally those three small ships are quite large, that are ships waiting to load coal. We have one of the largest coal loading facility in the world and the ships queue up to load. We have had up to 50 ships sitting off the coast at any one time.
2 & 3 were a bit disappointing light wise. as there was considerable cloud around early.
Thanks again all.
