Sometimes, it's better to sleep in / by Mario Mirabile

I've waxed lyrical elsewhere about the beauty of early morning light, so as we were staying in the country overnight, I got up early and went searching for opportunities. The weather, however, has been unseasonably warm for May, so despite a windless morning there was no fog or frost, and the heavy overcast which had rolled in overnight killed any chance of a clear dawn.

I decided to go back to the house and see if the dawn over Wilsons Prom had anything to offer. The light remained flat and dull, but it still had some of that magic early morning blue hue. This is a three shot stitched panorama looking over the village of Sandy Point and Waratah Bay towards The Prom. It managed to save the morning, but only just.
