Dicky Beach Sunrise by Ben Messina

Currently unavailable for purchase

This was a strange morning, I woke up a 3am to be on the sunshine coast for sunrise. Only to find the beach covered in sea foam. I thought oh well the images will be different. So in I went, within 5 minutes I was covered in foam so was my camera bag and tripod. The sunrise was great. Just as I was finished shooting a lady walking her dog looked me up and down and “said oh my god, you poor thing”

Camera – Fuji GX617
Film – Fuji Velvia 50asa

    Hee hee – ‘Dicky’ Beach. Ahem. Seriously, the early morning rise and the foam experience was well worth it. This is outstanding. Gotta love that Fuji Velvia. Top work.
