[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken on the Mona Vale Beach north of Sydney. We go there every now and then to watch the sun rise over the Pacific ocean and it is always worth it.

The photo was just playing with the gifts that the ocean wash out and crawling around on all "fours" looking for some macro opportunities.

Shot Details:
Model: Canon EOS 350D DIGITAL
Exposure Time: 1/80
F-Stop: f/5.6
ISO Speed Ratings: 200
Focal Length: 70/1 mm (Sigma 17-70mm DG)
Date Taken: 2008-04-04 22:28

The little shell on the top reminds me of the hats that we wore on graduation hence the title.
