C'mon I know you all love the winter & can't wait to go for those long romantic walks along a windswept deserted beach, just you & your loved one enjoying the moment of solitude that only true love can bring.
No? Well you're probably right, lol.
So here I was, shortest day of the year, the winter solstice & with about 15 other hardy souls
from the the Flickr group, Newcastle Sundance http://www.flickr.com/groups/sundancers/ we
gathered at Stockton Beach at sunrise to capture this unique occasion. However, the weather gods weren't kind & the day produced an overcast morning to obscure the first rays of sun to
greet us hardy (some would say foolish) photographers.
The morning wasn't a total loss & after packing up our gear, we headed for Lexies On The Beach for a warming hot coffee & a bit of
breakfast. Later that morning I drove along the Hunter River & was able to capture some of the beauty of our wonderful river, bejewelled in the early morning light.
So if you see a group of amateur photographers wandering around some of Newcastle's iconic locations , especially around sunrise & sunset, it is probably the Newcastle Sundancers group.
