Lion Rock at sunrise

Lion Rock is traditionally hiked past on the last day of the south coast track. It is also accessed from South Cape Bay track that begins at Cockle Creek. After spending the night taking astrophotographs along the coastline in moderately cloudy conditions, this photograph was captured at about 5am just as the sun was rising through the lifting clouds.
