    Nudgee Beach Sunrise on the 17th of August

    Hi Guys

    Thinking of heading to Nudgee Beach on Wednesday the 17th of August. It's a public holiday in Brisbane (Ekka). Looks like low tide near sunrise and the weather man's saying it's be mostly fine (some clouds...) Sunrise is at 6:15 so will be there around 5:15.

    Anyone care to join? I've been there but never figured out where the mangroves are - is it close to the car park?
    Cheers DJ

    Dam...I would have come but I have a doctors appointment at 9 and I wouldn't have enough time to organise everything. After that Ivan and I are thinking of heading to the mountains or to Lone Pine with Chloe. I hope you get a good sunrise DJ.
    Thanks for looking....Cheers,

    Tempting, close"ish" to where I live, and do not start work until 10.00 ..... see what the weather does.

    A couple of different places to do the sunrise, some trees straight out front from the car park, and more around the corner, any idea what tide times are?
    I have this silly idea, that I should actually go and take photos with all this photography gear I have already accumulated, before I collect any more!

    See some of my photos here.

    Hi Mate would love to see you in the morning. Low tide's at 5.31AM (0.4m) and sunrise is at 6:16 (first light at 5:52AM). Tide at 6:16 is between 0.5 and 0.6m

    turn right into Fortitude street will get you into the carpark by the ramp.

    Unfortunately I have to work during the week or I would have met you there.... it's been ages since I got a photo of the back of your head

    Hope to catch up with you at another meet-up soon

    Thanks Steve - in the map I can also see the end of Nudgee Road - is this any good at all - from memory this is where you can see the sand ripples - am I right?

    You know what, I might try and make it too. I have only ever done one sunrise so far = last week at Redcliffe, so might like to get someone else's perspectives as well.

    Hey DJ, I am going to try and come along as well, I dont know this area at all and have had a look at the maps and there would seem to be a couple of places that you can get to the beach so where abouts were you thinking of meeting?
    cheers

    Thanks all for your interests so far. I'll be at the car park (end of Fortitude St) around 5:15 (latest by 5:30). Hope to have some good colours in the morning.

    See you there...

    apologies DJ, the gods conspired against me this morning, sick husband and very little sleep does not make a person hear an alarm at 4am, i must have flicked it off and gone back to dreamland...I hope that you had a productive morning and i look forward to seeing some photos!
