Pre-dawn in St Kilda, photographer Wayne Knight rose to make this superb image

Image: ‘Lagoon Pier’ by Wayne Bradbury. Taken using a Canon EOS 5D Mk II, with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM.

Some images are worth getting out of bed for.

Wayne Bradbury was staying a few nights in St Kilda, Australia, when he rose at dawn for a brief photo walk.

Ending up at Lagoon Pier in Port Melbourne just before sunrise, he spotted a beautifully tranquil scene with some fantastic colours, and captured this superb shot with his Canon 5D Mk II.

Attached to Wayne’s camera was a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens – an excellent wide-angle zoom lens in Canon’s L range that is perfect for broad scenes such as this.

The lens scored an impressive 88% in our review when it was released in 2008.
