    Finally managed to drag myself out of bed well before sunup. Took a trip up Sydney's Northern Beaches for some sunrise action over Mona Vale Ocean Pool and rock platform. It's a bit of a home coming for me given Mona Vale being the place of my birth. Also visited Narrabeen Ocean pool just to the south where I sat and enjoyed my morning coffee and took a few B&W shots.

    The hardship of getting up early has paid off, I'd say! #1 and #2 are my favorites.

    Thank for all the comments, much appreciated. I'll be back up to these locations over the winter months, I really want to capture Mona Vale pool on a full tide when the sea is a little more angry for more dramatic water flow. My plan is to do a full series of some of Sydney spectacular Ocean Pools, there is around 30 of them just along the Sydney coast line between the Northern, Eastern and Southern beaches and a few in Sydney Harbour itself.

    Well I requested angry seas but I think mother nature over delivered. Some epic seas lashed the Eastern seaboard this week with a king tide and up to 8 metre (25ft) swells rolling in. A couple of shots of Mova Vale pool the day after the worst of it.
