This is one of my favorite photo from my second trip to Bermagui which is located around 400km from Sydney.

I arrived this location at 5:00 after I finish shooting milky way earlier that morning. The increasing cloud and the rising sun start to bring some lovely color to the sky and water.

Since it's low tide, I managed to get really close and pick a foreground that works with background rock.

The foreground is only half meter away from my camera, I took two long exposures with 3 stops GND on. One focus to the far rocks and another focus to the foreground. Then use focus stack to blend them in Photoshop.
