I clambered around the rocks at the southern end of Miller’s Point Cape Town, South Africa in the gusting cold winds to find a little nookie for my Canon G3X, Joby tripod and I a few minutes before sunrise.
It was one of those blessed “once in a blue moon” sunrises where I sat for some time after shooting and thought “Oh Wow!”.
The ocean lapped the shore, the birds were squawking about, golden light was about and I soaked up all Mother Nature had to offer. The Kogelberg Nature Reserve / mountains lay in the background.

Hard to beat a sunrise over the sea. Nice work.
I’m interested in the results from your G3X – it’s one of three cameras on my list for travel.
All the best for the coming year.
Many thanks. With the 24-600 mm and strong RAW I find it to be a gem. Flickr album here of all G3X shots: https://www.flickr.com/photos/68179746@N03/albums/72157667148977854
Those look great. I am finding my trusty 60D is cumbersome and sometimes heavy, so I’m looking for something a bit easier to carry, possibly G3X and a G7X in my pocket.
In Durban last October the size / visibilty of the DSLR was too much a lot of the time, so I ended up using a mobile phone most of the time. Heading for Durban next October, I don’t want to be in the same position!
