2nd July 2017

01:30 – Wake on settee and realise I should be in bed.

01:35 – Finally move and check phone as walking to go to bed. Note some activity from friends related to NLCs.

01:45 – Sitting debating if to go out or not with camera to capture NLCs. Check sky from garden, NLCs look strong. Decide to head out.

02:00 – Arrive at seafront. NLCs look very impressive. A bit cold, should have put my jeans on and not my shorts and sandals.

02:45 – Finished walk around Seaburn/Roker are next to White Lighthouse capturing some shots on my Canon 80D. Tried different compositions with the 10-18mm and 18-200mm lenses.

03:00 – Back home please with catch. Trying to get a bit warm. Have a drink and biscuit.

03:15 – Might as well stay up a bit more and get sunrise.

03:30 – Sunrise location planned using Plan.It app for Android. Gives exact location I need to be to get the shot I want.

04:00 – Sitting down beach in car realising I probably left the house a bit early to get sunrise, which was due 04:32

04:20 – Setup camera and stand around. Bit warmer than early thanks to socks, jeans and a thick hoody. Few taxis about carrying party goers home.

04:32 – Sun rising. Awesome experience, one I’ve not had a for a while. Capture my shots bracketing exposure to make HDR. Trying different compositions, although I will likely only pic one.

05:00 – To bed. Fitbit states when I wake that I got 6 hours broken sleep so not bad.
