Perched high above the crashing ocean huge cliffs drop off to either side , balanced on a knife edge , tripod locked only marginally in place I waited the dawn of a new day.

Nugget point is a spectacular place to visit, in some ways an easy place to shoot, but in others not so!

You dont get many chances to shoot such a location with great light and a long exposure like this!

Beautiful, surreal image! My only nit is that I'd prefer it a little less centered; maybe pan camera to the right a bit? I find the sea on that side to be fascinating-looking, & you could still capture the sun. All personal taste, of course.

Thanks, I have some panoramics to process from here that show more that side.. will take a while to get to though!

Thanks everyone for the comments
