I am a firm believer in the exquisite beauty of nature.  Being on holidays with family and friends in our own Surf Coast was just so perfect to try and get out and grab something memorable.

The best thing about staying in Apollo Bay is The Great Ocean Road is only an hour away which would give us an opportunity to watch the sunset in it’s entirety.  If you haven’t stayed for the sunset please do it is very special.

The sun, the sky and colours just turned it on for us and we are fortunate to capture some of these gorgeous landscape shots.

The last pic in this series is a sunrise shot from Skene’s Creek just before Apollo Bay – I would love to capture more of our beautiful surroundings this year and just share the vast beauty of what is in our “own backyard”.

I Hope you enjoy this series….. I am a novice when it comes to landscape photography however when I am out there at 5:00am in the morning setting up for that 10 minutes of amazing light, it’s a real buzz!

Until next time…. John Yau

Whilst I had a little break at the start of the year, I decided that I should make the effort to get up and enjoy the sheer beauty of nature.  I must admit I am not really a morning person and thankfully no one was around except for a few brave fisherman around the beach area in where my family and I stayed.  Walkerville in Victoria was the location of our little getaway and with the beach house only 10 minutes walking distance away, I really had no excuse in not making the most of the opportunity.

These two photos were taken down at the beach on Waratah Bay on the 1st January 2012.  I was amazed at the beautiful array of colours from the sunrise and it just made it all worthwhile so from now on a new tradition will follow on the 1st of every year where ever I maybe at that time!
