The creation of this image almost didn’t happen. I had stayed overnight at Lorne on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road and really struggled, as I always seem to do, to get out of bed in the morning. The weather was bleak and the anticipated sunrise looked like it might well be a non-event. There are voices in our heads to which we should listen. The problem is we often give in to the wrong voices, the ones that suggest the easy way out, the wrong behaviour or the negative view. I’m so glad that on this day I listened to the right voice.

Once on the beach I waited in the gloom. For just a few moments the sun broke through, lit up the clouds and illuminated the water. I had to be quick as just after the image was made a dark cloud rolled over the sun and the scene returned to that of a bleak morning.

Once again I’ve processed the original color image in Adobe Lightroom prior to rendering it into a split toned black-and-white image within Adobe Photoshop CS3.
