Cape Naturaliste Sunset

cape naturaliste, australian landscape photography, australian seascape photography,

Hi Everyone,

I managed to capture this shot last weekend while I was down south.   I thought I’d finished shooting for the night and was actually walking back to the car when I turned around once last time and saw this scene.  Needless to say I had to unpack my camera as quickly as possible as I won’t going to miss capturing this moody, dramatic, stormy sunset.   For those who like to know:

Camera Settings:

Aperture – F11

ISO – 1oo

Shutter – 6secs

Filter – 3 stop GND Singh Ray filter

As always I’m glad that I turned around as I was walking off.  Have you guys ever done that?  Started to walk off only to find that your best shot was unfolding right behind your back?

    sweet shot mate, it reminds me of a place here on the coast called Rainbow Bay just near Snapper Rocks except where the sun is setting is about where the sun rises anyway keep up the good work the last post is great as well love the wave movement.

      HI Darren,

      Thanks for the encouragement. I really appreciate it. 🙂 I think this photo would be a definite personal favourite for 2010.

    Hey Jamie, great shot as usual. I have seen a couple of your post and by far this would be my most favorite. Keep it up!

    Yeah, I do that everytime actually.

    Sometimes you just have to look back and witness a great shot unfold right there, and once that does happen man, you just have to click away!

      Hi Apple.

      Thanks very much for a great comment. You are so right, you really do have to do a 180 nearly everytime you’re doing a shot.

    Dramatic shot. Wow, I’m out of words and not because of the writer’s block but because this shot is beyond words. Its just so beautiful for words.

    This reminds me a lot of how my summer would usually end and look like when I was a kid. My dad used to take me to the beach during sunset so we could both enjoy it. Good days.

    Beautiful shot indeed here Jamie oh and yes I have learnt the hard way and missed my fair share of good shots so now I stay until its pitch black and then go for the car ;).

      Hi Brett,

      Thanks for that. Good call on staying until its dark, I always do normally. You just never know what is going to happen. Peter Eastway mentioned on a blog that so many people always tell him that he missed a great sunset as he is walking to the location and they are walking away from it. He just smiles and says thanks, as he heads out to capture some amazing light.

    Yeah I remember reading that in one of his blogs think it was the one on death valley desert its amazing sometimes what you can achieve when you think all is gone its about knowing when and where thats for sure.

      Yeah. I can’t believe I used to be one of those people who would hop in their car the moment the sun touched the water.
