– Pink Rain –

The sunset that occurred last night while waiting for the forecasted storms to arrive was nothing short of spectacular. As the sun dipped below the horizon the light hit the back of the rain and created an incredible glowing pink, that almost seemed to pulsate as the suns light hit different parts of the clouds.
It only last for about 2 minutes, but to witness it was amazing! I only wish that I time-lapsed it!

Not the strongest composition ever, but I could not go past capturing what I thought to be a special moment.

Some days in the summer we are very lucky for a strong cool sea-breeze to come in off the ocean and provide relief. Sometimes however it calms down to a gentle breeze right before sunset, and provides a great time to get down the coast and get a few shots.

A couple of nights ago. the elements all lined up. The breeze calmed down, the clouds were high, and the ocean was clear as day.

I love Western Australia’s coast!

Winter has shown itself the last few weeks in the south west of Western Australia. Wet and windy conditions made for difficult conditions most mornings and afternoons, but I was lucky on this evening, the rain stayed away for a short while. The sun dropped below the horizon, and then the colour bounced through the sky.
A nice way to start my week in the south-west.

After heading south to drop off a couple of prints, I thought I would extend the trip and head to Point Peron and photograph it for the first time.

I arrived early to scout the new surrounds, and found this spot a short walk from the carpark.
I would love to return here not only to take a few more shots, but the coastline is amazing. Maybe a dive around the place will be in order next summer.

While scouting for a suitable composition for sunset. I found myself distracted by the crabs doing their thing on the rocks. Another fascinating subject to capture at Point Peron. Amazing what you can find if you look straight down.

I almost done it again. I was busy at home, and just happened to walk to my back door to have a gander outside. The sunset that was going to occur looked amazing. All the ingredients were there, a decent gap between the horizon and the clouds, the clouds were at a height that were not going to shield any potential colour that may occur. My only issue was time. I turned and raced to my car, jumped in and bolted to the beach. 5mins I was set up and shooting this.
Very lucky indeed, and I say it all the time, but we West Aussie’s are so lucky to live in such a place to witness sunsets like this more often then not.

 

2 Minutes Late

The sunset tonight from my backyard was just awesome. Actually, it wasn’t just awesome from my backyard, countless people bared witness to one of the most terrific sunsets in recent times here in Perth. Technically not the most thought out photo ever, yet you just cannot go past the brilliant saturation of colours presented to us in Perth tonight. We truly are blessed to be living in one of the best places on earth to witness sunsets like this.
Just magnificent.

I haven’t shot metro seascapes for a while, and one of the reasons for this was this particular shot. See that big splash of water, yep, that ended up all over my gear.
I am one who takes the upmost care when taking my gear onto the rocks for seascapes, as you can never be too sure. This freak larger set surprised me, and I almost paid the price of my gear being destroyed.

When work calms down a touch, I hope to get back down to the beach, and in particular the SW capes to again capture the beauty Western Australia has to offer.
