While shooting The Norfolk Island Chasing the Light documentary with my good mate, Ray Martin, Ray asked me one day where I was going to shoot the next morning. I said I thought the light would be happening at Anson Bay. Ray pointed out I’d be shooting away from the sunrise, and I told him that’s often the best way to shoot, with the light coming from behind to illuminate the scene. Ray decided he was going to Ball Bay to shoot into the sunrise. As a joke I said, “Ray, you might balls thing up at that location.”
Before first light we headed for our chosen locations – at opposite sides of the island. My first shot at Anson Bay was The Pulpit. The rocky ledge features what look like two rabbit heads. As the scene before me went from spectacular to utterly glorious, I thought of Ray, an avid South Sydney (Rabbitohs) supporter. “Ray, I think you blew it.” A double bunny sunrise then, to top it off, as I moved further along the beach, a miraculous double rainbow.
