We returned this morning to the Boneyard at Bombo, on the NSW South Coast, to take advantage of one of the last weekends before daylight saving ends and our body clocks rebel at dawn shoots. As it was, we needed to arise at 4am to get to Bombo well before first light at 6.30am.

One of the treasures of shooting at the Boneyard is that if the clouds don't arrive for sunrise your shoot doesn't have to end there and then but the camera can be turned onto the massive basalt columns adorning the shoreline, the last remnants of a quarry from early last century.

This photograph represents my best capture of dawn colour. Shortly afterwards, and before the light got too harsh, I devoted the rest of the shoot to photographing away from the sun.
