Tallebudgera Creek Sunset 23/2


As I left home to meet up with Gold Coast/Perth photographer Beau Mitchell it began to pour with rain, not the best conditions to be shooting a sunset. It was still quite overcast and rainy when i got to Tallebudgera, i was thinking that all i was going to get was a wet camera instead of a new image but in the past every time i go home in these conditions the sky goes crazy with the most amazing light. It wasn’t one of those days with the perfect light you dream of and it was still spitting on and off but eventually the sky began to glow with some nice colour and this is what i came up with… hope you like it.

Nice one, man. The pastel colours work really well. I opted for something a bit more contrasty while processing mine.

Have you had a look through your Purlingbrook photos yet?

Cheer Beau… yeah the photos from purlingbrook weren’t that good, the light above the waterfall was a little harsh might have to go back at a different time of day i think.
