Until this week I hadn’t shot a seascape (or much of anything) for quite a few months.
I’ve been on a hiatus of sorts, and generally disinterested in photographing or being involved with much concerning photography.
On Wednesday night I took Brisbanite Dave to Long Reef, a location on Sydney’s Northern Beaches which has always been a source of pleasing images. It was a location Dave had not visited before, and with it being one of the best seascape locations in Sydney, he had to experience it.
Unusually for me, this was a dusk shoot (I mostly shoot dawns), but the timing was right as far as the tide (Long Reef really needs a low tide for best results), and we both were secretively (or perhaps not so secretively) happy not to be getting out of bed at 3am.
Here is an image I captured minutes before sunset:
I’m very pleased with this image in terms of the sky, the composition and the colours.
This scene alone was well worth the trip.
