Burleigh Heads, Queensland, Australia, is an idyllic location for surfers, walkers and photographers.

This beach is popular with photographers due to the incredible light conditions, particularly at full tide. The ocean surges towards you at an accelerated rate. Surfers are prolific, from dawn to dusk, particularly when the offshore wind makes its presence felt.

The morning I captured this shot, the sunrise was amazing from first light. Earlier in my photoshoot this particular morning, I started with my camera facing in the opposite direction, which is perfect for first light and sunrise.

During my shoot, I lowered my tripod to a height that was ideal for my camera to literally skim above the water, maximising the effects of the light on the water and the rocks.

Thank you for appreciating my work!
