Currumbin Beach Sunrise - Panorama by Maxwell Campbell

Currumbin Beach Sunrise - Panorama by 

Currumbin Beach – Gold Coast – Queensland – Australia

Canon EOS 450D – Canon EF-S Lens 15-85mm

Early morning on Currumbin Beach on the Gold Coast. As i drove down the beach, i really didn’t have much hope of getting any colour in a dreary looking sky. Even as i set up it didn’t look promising. But as first light broke, a small glow started to emerge over Coolangatta. Sometimes you just never know.
