I have been away from home for a couple of days on a work-related trip. Byron Bay is a beach town close to the most easterly point of mainland Australia. This distinction is held by Cape Byron which, unsurprisingly, is marked with a lighthouse.
This was taken just before dawn on the second morning of my visit. There is quite an extensive area of beach which is designated for dogs and there were plenty of pooches and their owners taking advantage of the crisp, clear mornings.
I was able to witness the sun rise over the easternmost point of Australia, although the summit of Mt Warning, a little to the north-west, is actually the point that is first touched by sunlight.
A blush of orange heralds the sunrise.
The golden orb clears the horizon.
