Not only does Laguna Bay offer great protection from the traditional winter wind but also has the pleasure of being filled with the early light as the sun clears the Noosa headland and warms the recipients taking to the beach.
This makes it a perfect spot to catch up with friends with lots of early morning coffee spots waiting to greet you as you move off the beach.
Most mornings I swing the lens east and find other things to put in the way
This morning I had the need for a rubber neck as the colour and light emanated from the west reflecting over the Noosa River.
It gave me opportunity to capture places usually reserved for those capturing sunsets later in the day.
Welcome to May! A deepening low just off the coast is taking its frustrations out on the Sunshine Coast. Unlike the one that smashed NSW last week, this one is on the move so we will have its company for the day before it moves on.
For me, this also marks a new era. For the past 3 years I have been processing and filing my photos using Aperture, a simple yet convenient way that suited my needs. Unfortunately, in updating my computer that is no longer available to to me so I have made the decision to take on Lightroom and Photoshop. Although I am more than a little daunted by the software I have been having a play getting ready to start officially using it today. I understand that the programs are way more than I need it seems to have a suitable filing process which I do need so please be patient as I get used to a new rhythm of doing things!
Despite lots of cloud building out to sea I could see small streaks of red lacing early as I headed down to Noosa. Playing with the light on the swirling water with the dropping tide the clouds burst suddenly with a bold and vivid colour which disappeared as quickly as it appeared.
During the week the n its annual migration north, slipped past 80degrees which marked the point where the sun clears Noosa headland and begins to fill Laguna Bay with the first light. I have been waiting for the cloud to clear and this morning it revealed itself in suitable spectacular fashion
South Easterly winds have been slowly pushing swell onto the coast and as the activity ramped up overnight all roads led to Noosa where the points on the headland rose from their long sleep to begin cranking out some nice waves.
Lots clouds out to sea offered up a changing morning as colours scattered through the clouds. Looking back from the Noosa NP however Noosa sat invitingly protected from both the wind and rain!
