Taken at Gordon at about 7am this morning, Friday 28 August 09.
I was taking photos of the sunrise and caught this chap on his way to work (presumably). A lucky shot.

    Catches the worm! Love this time of day, nice shot Anne.

  • Thanks Cathryn. I’m very not an early bird. lol. But I agree it is the best time of day where everything is fresh and new. I do love it, but I love sleeping in much more.

    excellent work Anne – a different take on sunrise

  • Thanks Jim. I liked it when I took it because it was such a chance thing. I stood at the side of the road taking photos of the sunrise when on my way home from an overnighter in Ballarat. And I heard him coming and hoped I’d catch it. It came out better than I’d expected.
