This morning I took some friends from my camera club to Turimetta on Sydney’s northern beaches. Some hadn’t shot seascapes (or shot them much), so were keen to try upon my offer.
Unfortunately my wish for a good sky this morning yet again did not come true; the sky was plain and very bright.
I didn’t shoot much at all, and gave up out of frustration, packing up my camera quite a while before the others were done. I’ve had a frustrating few days.
The conditions were wrong in every way; the sky sucked, it was blowing a gale, the tide was too high and much of the famous Turimetta gorge was filled with sand, covering the great rocks for which this location is well-known.
However, during the pre-dawn light I did land one gem thanks to some light painting I did with my trusty Maglite 6D torch. Here it is:
Thankfully my companions got to experience some dawn seascaping, and for some, a fairly new form of photography. On parting they expressed to me their thanks and enjoyment of the morning.
All was not lost, and hopefully they are keen to explore this subject more.
