Stormy Sunset 16/3


With the state awards fast approaching I decided that it was time to go shooting for the day. Beau Mitchell and I headed south, originally wanting to photograph the border ranges the light wasn’t right so we decided to hit the beaches for something different. Our trip went from the Gold Coast down through the Tweed Coast to Byron Bay and finally back to the Gold Coast where this sunset shot was taken.

5D Mark 2 – 24-70mm2.8L – ND 3 stop – 3 second exposure

Also my new website is in the final stages of its design and will be released on Monday 29th March.

Hey Jamie thanks for the comment. I had a great day shooting yesterday, the surf is pretty big over here so Beau and I headed down to snapper rocks for a few pics then down to a secret spot of mine then to Byron which the light wasn’t too great but when we got back home there was a crazy storm coming in so we headed down to the beach for one last shoot, quite the day.

Looks real good, man. Gotta love that glowing clouds, and the reflections in the water in the foreground is sweet. I’m just going through my pics now, got a few that I can’t wait to process!

Thanks heaps Tony and I missed the best of it about 2 mins before it was the same sky but with an incredible double rainbow as well… I have entered this shot into the Queensland professional photography awards so I guess I will see if the rest of the photography community have to say about it.
