“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”




It’s summertime now in Melbourne – Australia and time to capture some beautiful sunrise shots at Brighton Beach. We arrived at the beach early morning to find a couple of people undertaking their daily exercise routine and a number of keen photographers seeking to capture a beach sunrise.

Above Photography:  After taking the photograph below, I turned around and sighted this above beach view.  It was just beautiful and the warm early morning sunrise poured orange into the clouds above and across the wide-open sandy beach.  Way in the distance the Melbourne City skyline was in sight and looking out over Port Phillip Bay.  Not a person in sight except for the occasional seagull.

Below Photograph:  While thinking about my approach for the morning I sighted this scene below.  As the ‘blue hour’ started to drift into the sunrise, the street lights lit up the sandy beach and one of the Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes.  The view took in clouds hanging lowly in the sky with the Port Phillip Bay shoreline gently meeting the sandy beach. The lighting was gorgeous and something different for a beach photograph for me!




Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the natural wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.
