Moody Sunset at Gerroa

There wasn’t much chance of a showy post-sunset sky last night, but I fancied an evening on the beach so I headed down to Gerroa anyway. Low cloud was the order of the day with big cumulous clouds on the horizon and overhead, but the sun did put on a nice show before it dipped below the horizon for another day.

The sunset held very little promise of colour thanks to a tonne of low cloud but it was a nice quiet evening and I fancied catching the sunset at Gerroa, so that’s where I went.

Down the beach, life goes on as normal, folks fishing, walking, surfing, taking photos …

The wider shot. Sun poking out from underneath the low clouds.

Not sure if they were taking selfies or face-timing.

Your classic Gerroa to Coolangatta shot.

Sun rays reflected in the tidal sands.

Sun about to head into that bank of low cloud off to the south-west.

Favourite shot of the day? Yes, I think so. Nice tones, nice sun, nice foreground.

Moody skies and bronze reflections in the hard sand on the foreshore.

Through the 50mm.

Meanwhile off the rocks at Black Head, some surfers enjoying the waves.

Birds heading down-beach to roost.

G’day mate.

Last shot of the night. I wonder if those guys bent over scrabbling around in the sand every found what they were looking for – which I’m assuming was bait.


Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa is my ‘go to’ beach as it’s a short drive from my house and offers a flexible number of landscapes in one small area. You can shoot on the beach, on the reserve by the boat ramp, over the rocks behind Crooked River or round the corner at Black Head.
