The latest AG Flickr group image of the week reveals a beautiful sunrise.

This week’s AG Flickr photo comes to us from group member Janet Wippell, for her image titled ‘Rockpool’.

“I was very excited to have a weeks’ holiday staying on the edge of Noosa National Park,” says Janet. “Every morning I would get up at 4 am and hike into the park, mostly to be greeted by a grey dawn. I wanted to capture the beauty of the Australian coastline, so I could return to Ireland, where I’m from, with a shot to remind me of home. On this morning I decided to make the most of the cloud formations by capturing the reflections in the rock pools Tea Tree Bay is famous for. I used a Cokin Graduated ND filter to balance out the slightly overexposed sky.

I have had SLR camera’s most of my life, but like most people, I only used them on the automatic settings. Then I moved to Ireland and found myself with a lot more time on my hands without my usual social contacts. I started doing casual photography courses and now photography has become my passion (my husband says, obsession). These days when I travel I take more photography gear than clothes.”
