before the sun wakes

by Nina Joan


Taking photos before the sun wakes in the morning is one of my favourite times to photograph. When the alarm rings (ridiculously early), rather than be annoyed I am awake in an instant and ready to see what the new morning brings. It is easier when you don’t have to travel far to your location and trying to take dawn photos while in the city can be quite difficult. This photograph was taken while I lived in country New South Wales last year. All I had to do was walk out my door and down the drive way and I would be amongst the mountains, the mist and the glorious sounds and smells of the bush. Every morning was a new adventure to see what new masterpieces was created.
