They say the early bird gets the worm, but it could also be true that the early bird gets the views.

These photos for this week’s City Scenes show the early sun rising over the Geraldton Golf Club in Wonthella and breaking through the trees, making the argument for dawn being the best time of day.

The Geraldton Golf Club was established in 1932, back when the clubhouse was a three-room building built from wood and iron and held a total membership of 30 associates.

Today, the 18-hole golf course glows with bright greens with a modern clubhouse with all the facilities necessary.

The first photo captures the golf course and surrounding suburbs that meet with the coast. The second image is of a freshly raked bunker with the early sun breaking through the trees.

The photos were taken by Kimberley Douglas of Glow Photography. Ms Douglas said she captured these photos at the crack of dawn in promotion for the golf club and their stunning fairways and greens.

“Drone photography/videography was also used to capture the luscious greens that blossomed from the April rain we received,” she said.

Ms Douglas said the club requested she photograph the club early to avoid traffic and capture the best time of day.

“The request from the club was to capture the early morning bliss with no one on the greens, including the preparation and hard work of the maintenance and gardeners prior to the club’s busiest times,” she said.
