Rowing at sunrise
I'm off on a walk along the water's edge at 6am when I come across these girls rowing on the bay. The two boats have just turned around in Darling Harbour and the girls are listening to their coach's instructions for the next run. Then they notice me taking pictures of them and they're delighted. We exchange a few words, we are no more than a few feet apart. They tell me they have been on the water since 5:15 this morning. I am amazed, the sun hasn't even hit the water yet! But its golden rays are already illuminating the buildings above, creating bright reflections contrasting with the blue shadows in the foreground.
