A Christmas Dawn by Dee-T A Christmas Dawn by Dee-T
Petrel Cove
South Australia

Firstly, apologies for the lack of participation here on dA. Life has been full of different things happening including weekend weddings, work commitments and getting the house ready for renovations. That and looking after our beautiful baby has left us little spare time these days!

Putting that aside, in the days leading up to Christmas, I had managed to clear the backlog of wedding photographs to edit and so, I was excited to head down to the coast for a dawn again instead of seeing beautiful dawns and dusks pass through my study window! Petrel Cove is a rugged place to photograph with Victor Harbor's bluff in the background. Due to its southerly aspect, this kind of shot is really only possible during mid summer. In between dodging waves and getting soaked, opportunities like this presented themselves.

Merry Christmas everyone!! Lets hope new year presents itself with another opportunity like this.
