Looking across Chowder Bay at Clifton Gardens. The seagulls were happy to take in the sunrise too.

Got up at that silly hour to meet up with some RBlers before sunrise. Also there were Maria, Yolanda, Ian and Adriano. Right in the water where we were, there was a shark enclosed and we had just been under the jetty taking photos and getting wet, not realising until the Ranger told me.

    Yes please:)

  • Funny enough, first time around this was not one of the photos I decided to put up on RB. Now I have had a second look and decided it was pretty good after all.

    Beautiful capture scene,…

  • Thanks John. I had missed this photo when I was looking at the keepers from the last photo-shoot. Luckily I went back last night and saw it there.

    Beautifully captured Christina.

  • Thanks heaps Julie. It was taken when we had a few Sydney RBlers together for an early morning photo-shoot, and I think you had a few get together for a photo-shoot up your way too. Lots of fun and laughter. In the water on this side of the pier I was told had a shark in there. I didn’t see anything though.
