Diggers Beach Autumn

Clouds are transient. I looked out my window before sunrise and I saw some interesting clouds. I decided to get up and photograph the dawn. First I headed to Jetty Beach, but my interesting clouds that were overhead before dawn were now heading towards Diggers Beach. I still had twenty minutes before dawn, and I made Diggers in plenty of time. By this time my interesting bank of high clouds was out to sea disappearing over the horizon.

So I started with 35mm, because on anything wider the clouds were swallowed up by an expanse of cloudless sky. A few rounded pebbles strewn on the beach became foreground interest, and something solid to focus my lens on. Cloud reflections in sand are my favourite things, so I did a dance with the waves and backwash to get my camera in place each time the ocean retreated revealing to me the wet sand art, which I love.
