    So tranquil, and the colours are beautiful, Excellent work Erik!

  • Thank you -and thanks for the fav. Actually, there was quite a bit of surf – the 30 second exposure smoothes things out!

    Wow this is gorgeous – never seen Coogee look like this. Great work!

  • Thank you -and thanks for the fav. It was worth getting up at 5am for this (picture taken at about 6:40am, some twenty minutes before sunrise)!

  • Thanks Kathy – glad you like. Actually, as I said in the description, there’s no HDR used in this image (and no layers either), so this particular photo is probably not suitable for your group (the foreground and the building are lit by street lighting). Thanks for the invitation, though – I’ve joined the group and will add other work.
