Byron Bay Sunrise

A three hour road trip and a winters morning sunrise is enough to make anybody's day.

Sunrise @The Pass Lookout, Byron Bay 2016

The night before this photo was taken I was sitting in a late night business lecture counting down the minutes before I could jump in my car, pick up my friends and drive to another state to watch the sunrise. 

I left home at 1am, drove to the other side of town and back picking up my friends, then headed south to Byron Bay, NSW to watch in awe as the sun awoke in front of us. 

We arrived at 4am and sat patiently on the main beach awaiting first light. The site of it is an unforgettable memory.

We then raced up to The Pass Lookout where the first photo was captured, 6:37am to be exact and the sun was showing itself in full. Our body clocks completely thrown off by the unusual feeling of being awake so early for so long, but definitely worth the early morning rush.

You are lucky to have friends who you can gather to watch the sunrise at this hour!
I can't even get mine to come for lunch on time haha.

Btw what camera do you use for your photos?

Haha yes, very lucky that my friends enjoy random adventures such as this one 😊 The first two photos were shot on a Nikon (not 100% sure of the model as it was shot on a friends camera) and the panorama was on my iPhone 6S. Most of my photos though will be shot on a Canon 70D. I do have a post that I'm currently writting showing the equipment I usually use 😁

Thank-you! Byron Bay is so beautiful, I just wish I could live there or at least closer haha. Kangaroo Point is one of my "go to" places. Sunset walks along the river to the story bridge, watching the city slowly light up the skyline is amazing and just makes you forget everything.

My pleasure. My friend lives right on the river bank, directly across from the central business district, with a balcony looking at the the big buildings across the water. Sweet place to barbeque & sip wine....
