Manly Sunset – Northern Beaches of Sydney 04/1

2 Comments


Welcome to 2011…

Last year was a busy year, time flew by with a blink of an eye and no doubt this year fly by even quicker. Over the holiday period I went down to Sydney to pick up a new canvas printer for the office and to catch up with family so while I was down there I decided to see what is around down that way in terms of photography. All the photographers down that way certainly have it lucky that’s for sure there is a much bigger beach culture than that here on the Gold Coast and the people seem a lot more friendly.

The first morning I shot at a beach just north of Manly called South Curl Curl, shooting in and around the South Curl Curl sea pools was great and was a little refreshing as it is not something we have here on the coast to shoot so readily. Later on that evening I did a bit of a google map search trying to find the best spot to get a sunset photo and worked out a couple good spots as well as back up plans incase the light was going to be on the wrong angle but all of those failed me. After trying all my locations I headed back to Manly where I was staying and set up on top of the headland looking back towards the North Steyne surf club after a while of waiting the sky just lit up, looks like I got lucky on this little trip south, A great sunrise and an awesome sunset to back it up.
