When my buddies and I stayed overnight on Rangitoto Island I was the only one up in time for the sunrise. This was probably because I was sleeping in the conservatory.
I grabbed my camera and nipped down to the wharf. Barefoot, in the clothes I slept in. It was me, some gulls, and this guy out in his fishing boat.
When I got to the wharf I proceeded to set up the camera and wait. I wasn’t waiting long. Sunrises are really cool, but they do seem to come and go fairly quickly.
I did have enough time to take some photos of myself 🙂 That’s important. I spend a lot more time behind the camera than in front of it. This is in the days before Tiernan bought a tripod for me. So the camera was resting on the wharf or on a pillar. Enough to keep it steady for the sun!
