Thanks for dropping in leaving comments and favouritings it is appreciated

Sometimes when I get up early for the sunrise or get out late to catch the sunset, I think we are students of the light always chasing it and hoping for clouds to highlight.

Well sometimes say thank you when you catch it, on this occasion all the conditions clicked.

Narrabeen Lakes is a tidal lake , about 25 kilometres from the Sydney CBD on sydney’s northern beaches.

It has very little water traffic using motors so the surface is perfect for reflections

Flanked by Pittwater Road to the east and Wakehurst Parkway to the west, Narrabeen Lakes is Sydney’s northern beaches largest estuary system. It is located just behind the world famous surfing beach, North Narrabeen and here the heart of the lake, the entrance, pumps life daily into this compact system with each tide change. Narrabeen Lakes is a system that not only receives it’s daily flush from the ocean, but is also is fed by four creeks. The lakes offers the novice and more experienced angler a variety of fishing opportunities and challenges.
Of the four estuary systems on the northern beaches, Narrabeen Lakes, Dee Why Lagoon, Curl Curl Lagoon, and Manly Lagoon, Narrabeen has the largest catchment area, which is 55 km2, and a waterway area of 2.2 km2. The lake has a spring tidal range of about 0.03 m compared to 1.32 m at the entrance

Technique: HDR 5 Bracketted Exposures, tonemapped in photomatix
Equipment: Nikon D300 Sigma 10-20mm
