They always say to lead with your best foot forward. I don’t know if this was my best foot from our Aussie/NZ trip, but it was the best light for sure. This required very minimal editing, other than lightening a little and making sure the horizon was straight. The color actually had to be desaturated because I didn’t think anyone would believe the sky could be that brilliant. Maybe it’s a southern hemisphere thing.
On our last sunrise before we left to the airport to return to the States, this is how Sydney said goodbye.
