Mahon Morning Sunrise

Hello All,

As promised the rest of the shots from that sunrise morning. The Mahon Pool is just north of Maroubra Beach and you can find a big carpark just on the north side where you park and walk down to the pool. It is an ocean pool, fed by the water at high tide (not sure about fishing in there tho). There are some interesting rock formations in the area, along with a lovely rock shelf which at high tide all of the water cascades off.. I believe someone has named them the cathedral rocks. Just behind them there is a natural rock bridge.

Dad came down (thanks for the first photo pal) and had scouted around a bit further than where I normally travel. This found a great spot, a little place in the rocks that has obviously been carved out over a long time.. it has a shallow section and has some great wave effects.

I mainly headed to the Mahon Pool due to the tide being right on first light. Unfortunately Sydney has been void of much cloud cover on weekends in recent weeks, and this has caused the sky to not colour up like one normally desires for a sunrise. Never the less, still a great time of the morning.

It is getting much warmer, and before I know it im sure ill be in my board shorts and up to my waist in water again 🙂 I think the Jumpin Jack theme is catching on… something I will probably try and execute on every shoot I get out too in the future. Could make for an interesting book one day.

I would recommend a visit to the Mahon Pool (even in the afternoon). With a big swell the pool and the surrounding rock structures create many opportunities for seascapers.

And with that I will leave you with 2 more shots from that morning, that I popped on here earlier this week. I am looking to get out for another Sunrise this Saturday so lets hope the weather remains as forecast!
