I make an effort to head out to photograph the local landscape every day. Quite often I will head out for sunrise (usually at one of the local beaches) and, if the skies are looking good I’ll head out for sunset too. In a sense these collections are like photo diaries too as I often make note of anything that catches my eye.
You often get amazing sunsets on Seven Mile Beach, but throw in a gap on the horizon and a winter lee wave and you get some incredible sky light.
It might have been blowing a gale but on the beach it was a pleasant sunrise – vibrant colours splashed across the sky burning reds, oranges and pinks from horizon to horizon.
Yes, it was probably a morning you’d have been better served by spending under the doona, but photographers are strange folks.
With unsettled winter weather bringing adverse conditions to the south coast, things have been a bit quiet lately. However the skies are finally clearing and I was itching to get out and photograph a sunset no matter how good or bad it was forecast to be.
