Phillip Island – Victoria 07/3

1 Comment


This is an old shot from a trip I took down to Victoria a few years ago.

I arrived a little while before sunset and the sky had a thick haze that had been around all day so i was hoping once the sun began to set i would get some good light to work with. I set up and took a few photos with all different compositions, this image happened by chance whilst changing film the boardwalk caught my eye so i shot a singular frame and turned back to shoot the Nobbies.

Phillip Island has a massive fairy penguin colony so at sunset they close the roads and kick everyone out to stop the little trackers from getting ran over. The ranger was giving me quite the hurry up but the light was just to good to leave so i kept shooting, in the end he stood in front of my lens during the best sunset I have ever seen. All part of the game, I did manage to get this one image as well as a few others which you will be able to see in the coming month with the release of my new website.

That was probably so you didn’t get a ‘free’ look at the penguins. Beautiful shot BTW.
