It doesn't matter how many times you have the opportunity to watch the sun come up over the horizon each time is a breathtaking moment. I took these shots just as dawn was breaking two days ago looking over the city from Kings Park. It's especially poignant at this time of the year when we remember the courage and bravery of the Anzacs and of the men and women who have lost their lives in war over the last 100 years.
It's beyond sad to think that while remembering the bravery of the men who fought and died in the hope of peace the war still goes on.. for the first time in nearly a century the police force here and around Australia will break with tradition and be armed in response to safety concerns.
... and there it is, a golden glowing orb of hope! They were preparing the park when we were there for the expected 60,000 people attending the dawn service, if you've ever heard 60,000 people sitting in complete silence it's an unbelievable experience.. 'lest we forget'. Take care and stay safe..p.s. there were close to 80,000 people at the dawn service..
