Sydney is one of the best places in the world to capture a sunrise over the ocean. It is east facing and also has tons of coastal features such as coastal cliffs, picturesque hills, beaches, rock platforms and other goodies. So, every now and then I go to the cliffs to get some sunrise pictures with the Sun rising from below the horizon. Sometimes, I just stand there in awe not even doing any photos.
Sunrise Over The Ocean
There is some magic about the sunrise in general, you know. But when we add some body of water, ocean or the sea to the equation, it doubles the output! I can’t find the right words for it. What’s another word for best – breathtaking, stunning, mesmerizing? I don’t know and never think of it while watching the beauty of the nature in total awe.
Let me explain my feelings. The ocean is big and powerful and is full of surprise. Typically, at night it can be even a little scary. You hear its rumble and feel the spray coming from the wave crashes. It is dark and moody. And then the Sun is coming out painting wave crests with soft orange strokes, filling the air with warmth and sparks of happiness. This contrast effect is the one that doubles the magic and the overall positive vibe. Totally worth it to wake up in the middle of the night.
I have decided to share some of my most inspiring ocean sunrise pictures with you hoping they would transfer the feeling and the mood to you.
