It will depend on the days weather & tides as to where we will be going.  Post shoot it will be back to the room, dowload your files, charge batteries, cleand and organise your gear and have it ready to go for the following morning. Then it will be time for some dinner, after dinner we will be conducting some post processing tutorials, as well as working with you in a group & as indivduals on your files.

DAY 2.   Up early this morning for our first sunrise, we will need to travel accross the island to the eastern beach and then north to the cape to shoot the sunrise and the lighthouse. Weather will determine exactly what we will be doing and where, after that we will shoot the rock formations and crashing wavesof North Point, round the Cape to shoot Honeymoon Bay, the beaches & lagoons of Yellow Patch and surrounding areas, then it will be back to the room for a late morning breakfast and download. Out next option will be to again head north from where we will be staying up to the Bulwer Wrecks, and the wide open sandy beaches of the nort-west part of the Island.
