Shorncliffe Pier is an icon of South East Qld. It was built in 1884 and has serviced the locals in many ways over the years. Other than being a great fishing and swimming spot it actually once housed an amusement parlor with an open air picture theatre in 1928.
The morning of this shot I woke up at 4:45am to capture the sunrise at 6am. However three wrong turns later I had missed the sunrise by a few minutes. I setup near the start or the pier and noticed the piers wooden boards being bathed in the morning sunlight. I waited for the perfect time for the sun to peak over the handrail and well you can see what was captured. The vibrant colour of the sky and textures in the wood make this one of my favorite images captured to date.
