Sunrise + Sand + Newcastle = Fantastic trip down memory lane

18 July 2013: This morning I decided to go for a walk and take in the sunrise from my old stomping grounds rather than go for a paddle and what a fantastic decision that was. It was so nice to just sit back and enjoy a glorious sunrise from my old surfing spots from Newcastle to Nobbys beach. The pre-dawn tones were sublime and the morning transformation was brilliant. My walk this morning brought back so many memories and reminded how important it is to get out there and enjoy the simple things. I hope that you enjoy this mornings shots as much as I enjoyed photographing them, I had such a beautiful trip down memory lane.

It was so nice to feel sand beneath the toes and take in the sunrise from my old stomping grounds. I wish I had a dollar for every time I ran past these chains to jump of Newcastle Point for a surf.
