This morning was the second day of the Supermeet. It started at 4am with me leaving home to get back to Port Stephens for the sunrise. The rain was absolutely chucking down and when I arrived at Zenith Beach I was alone! It looked like all the keen people from yesterday had bailed because of the rain. Then there were lights. Two Canadians arrived and we made our way up the path through the now spitting rain.
No sooner had I set up my camera and the torrential downpour I had experienced on the drive up hit again. The Canadians disappeared back to the car. Shortly later Anne arrived...without her camera but she bore something more valuable...a lens cloth. The photo above was taken from under an umbrella in the driving rain!

The one below was taken about a hour later after we had gone to get a much needed coffee and the weather broke for a few minutes.
