Sunrise from the other side of the lake, a photo taken two years back (this blog post)
well there wasn't really, as it turned out. By the time I parked the car, and opened up the door against the wind with camera in hand, it started raining again. The speedboat in the distance was definitely in a hurry to get somewhere...maybe he too was planning on keeping dry.

I figured if I drove down the coast some, that by the time I got there, perhaps the showers might've disappeared for a while.
I was glad to see a lone pelican was sitting on a post at the little jetty at Budgewoi. No sooner I'd pulled up when again, the showers started, enough to dampen me off and made it so that I could only aim the camera from a certain direction else the rain would fly onto the lens. There was no time to stand around and wait for the best shots; it was a matter of grab what I could get and get back into the car. I waited for some time, wondering do I drive back home or will the rain ease of in five, ten ...? I got in and out of the car another few times between showers that really weren't going to let up.
