When all else fails...
... do a long exposure.
Here's my best shot from this mornings sunrise meetup with the NSW Northern Beaches Seascapers group at La Perouse in South Sydney.
It was cloudy, damp, miserable and dark. There was no hint of getting any colours in the sky so I fell back on my age-old trick of bunging my camera on as long an exposure as the light would allow and see what happens!
Turns out this one was 4 minutes long, which did a great job of smoothing the water out. I like how you can see the rocks just beneath. The stormy clouds on the horizon are pretty cool too.
