Sunrise over the ocean, Mackay, Queensland, Australia.
I am really getting into the swing of making your hobby into exercise. This morning I awoke early and went to the beach for a photo shoot.

Now before you go and say that going to the beach to take photos is not exercise, try lugging camera bags and tripod along a soft stretch of sand and you will see that it certainly is good exercise. Just being out of bed early and doing something is better than nothing at all.

So there we were this morning down the beach just before the sun came up and ready for the greatest show on earth. There is nothing like the crisp colours of the morning sun and mother nature really put on a show for us this morning.

We got some magnificent shots and as we were packing up we heard an incredible sound on the water. A pod of Humpback whales were going past and tail slapping, then one breached out of the water and it was an amazing sight. Unfortunately I didn't have my zoom lens on the camera and almost panicked when I realized that it was in the car. Yes I got back to the car quickly. Now that's exercise.

Unfortunately by the time I had got the zoom lens, the whales had moved out to sea a little too far for my camera's range. I will have to get a larger lens and be more prepared in future.

You just never know what you will see when you go exercising early in the morning.
