A gorgeous sunrise over the Apostles is this week’s reader photo.

Says Dylan is a self-taught amateur photographer from Adelaide:

“My wife and I spent four days based at Port Campbell in late February this year. On the last morning, I had been up all night photographing the twelve apostles by moonlight and starlight.

This scene is taken from the southernmost platform looking south toward Gibson’s steps. As dawn approached, I set up to take this image with the intent of having a front lit foreground.

This was achieved by taking two exposures just before and as the sun was rising over the cliffs to minimise flare from direct light. The third exposure was taken just after the sun had fully risen with the foreground in focus at a wider aperture such that I could freeze the motion of the blowing grasses with a shorter shutter speed.”
