Story behind the photograph
I had a short, five-day holiday on South Coast of NSW. We went down to Narooma and slowly climbed back towards Sydney.
Narooma is great tourist destination. Has a great beaches, snorkeling spots, fishing and bush walks. Just great summer time. The town itself is famous for its Australia Rock, pictured here during the sunrise over the Montague Island. I got up very early to align this photograph. I wanted the sunlight to shine through the opening in the rock which resembles the map of Australia. Low level clouds added to the dramatic effect. The rich colours in the photograph are courtesy of multiple, merged exposures increasing the dynamic range.
