Sugarloaf Rocks when photographers take over.

A friend who I hadn’t seen for many years came down last weekend. It turns out he was a keen photographer, so I suggested an early morning shoot at Sugarloaf Rocks. I could hear his wife laughing in the car when I suggested it, but Jim thought it would be a good idea (he did actually want to go to Sugarloaf).

We arrived early (well… before sunrise and at this time of the year that is early!). But the carpark was full. It turned out Christian Fletcher was running a course and they were all out at Sugarloaf Rocks. There were photographers on every rock, every little potential foreground feature and every leading line. They had taken all the clouds, rearranged them and there were non left for the rest of us. At least Christian agreed not to charge us for being there!

Sugarloaf Rocks can be spectacular when the sky is right, at other times you have to work harder. This is the best I could do, but I enjoyed being there with an old friend.Sugarloaf Rocks  in the morning.
