Scenic Sunday - Shelly Beach

I'm not a morning person.  Not even slightly.  With great sacrifice to myself and those around me who now have to tolerate my foul mood, I dragged myself out of my bed pre-dawn this morning to see what the surf was like at nearby Shelly Beach (Cronulla). 

6:45am Shelly Beach, Cronulla
The surf was rubbish, but a fantasic sunrise made the pain of not having my Sunday sleep-in worthwhile.

  1. Stunning! Sadly, my idea of a sleep-in these days is staying in bed until 7am. Oh how I miss those days of sleeping until 11!

  3. WOW! That first shot is INCREDIBLE! Aren't you glad you got up?! (I'm with you, though; I am NOT a morning person, which is ironic, since I have to get up every day by 5:30am.)

    You should link up at Unknown Mami's place today :)

  5. These are so gorgeous! I don't think I am ever out of bed long enough on a Sunday to get all scenic.

  6. That's magic. One of my favourite spots in Sydney.

  7. Gorgeous shots of sunrise! I'm not also a morning a person but if it's worth waking up early to see such beauty in nature then I would do so.
    Thanks for stopping by my post, Vicki:)

  10. These shots are beautiful. We have a Shelly Beach here in Qld, it might be a coin toss for stunning'ness! :oP

  11. These are very beautiful photographs. I never get that far down the coast (not that it really is that far!). Coogee is about my limit.

    But I DO love getting up early ...
