I've been itching to do a proper seascape for a while now. I didn't really get a chance to do any on my Queenstown trip, and I've had a few failed attempts in the last few weeks where the sunrise or sunset just didn't play ball.
This morning I decided to give it another crack. Like a lot of planned sunrise shoots I was so close to climbing back into bed with all the usual negative thoughts in my head (it's probably going to be too cloudy, too clear, raining, etc etc) but I managed to resist the urge and made my out to the North Shore. In the past I've sworn not to do any more Rangitoto shots but I just couldn't help myself (hey, I haven't done one since August!).
I ended up getting soaked for this shot - at times the water was waist deep (though I am vertically-challenged, so it's probably only knee-deep for most people...) - and my filters and camera got a bit of a drenching too from the crashing waves (camera still works, luckily), but it was all worth it. One of the best sunrises I've seen in ages.
