Sugar. So sweet, so irresistible, so very bad for us. It’s everywhere, and we love the stuff, despite knowing what it does to our bodies and our teeth. If you’re wondering why I happen to have sugar cubes to hand — well, you can’t make a champagne cocktail without one! Though, being virtuous 😉 , I cut them in half.
As with my previous (my first!) Bondi sunrise post in December, I woke up early today and couldn’t go back to sleep. So I figured I may as well capture the sunrise. The first sight was rather ominous, with all that heavy cloud.
The hundreds of fitness fanatics were not ominous, but they were unexpected.
The lifeguards’ day starts early. The sun rises an hour later now (about 6:30am) than in December, but they were already busy setting up.
Cameras at the ready!
The big event!
I had no idea so many people communed with the sea at this ungodly hour.
I never did figure out what this group was doing.
Tomorrow, I’ll definitely try to sleep through the sunrise.
Let’s end the Square Sky December challenge with a bang, not a whimper. Fireworks for New Year’s Eve! (I’m sure other people will have the same idea.)
Huge thanks are due to Becky for organising and hosting this challenge. I found it “challenging” enough to source and schedule my own photos, I can’t imagine also visiting and linking to everyone else’s!
Here is a recap of all my Square Sky photos. It includes some bonus ones that I uploaded but didn’t post, included here to make the columns even.
When the tide and wind and light are right, there’s a moment after a wave has rushed ashore when the sand is covered by a thin, reflective sheen of water. Such as in this photo at Bondi Beach.
Back to sea for this photo. Rodrigues is an island 650 km east of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. That’s part of “Nellie” (the tall ship Lord Nelson) on the right.
