Como Jetty Tones

Como Jetty, australian landscape photography

Hi Everyone,

How awesome is weather that we’ve been having at the moment?   On Friday evening I thought I’d go for the tourist shot of Perth from the South Perth foreshore and once I got there I managed to spot a few good angles that I thought would be good at sunset.  It soon became apparent though that Mother Nature had other ideas and that the action was going to be elsewhere.

I hopped back into the car and headed across to Como Jetty to capture the sunset there instead.  Its funny because as I was driving down the freeway on my way to the city I had looked at the Como Jetty and said to myself that is the spot for tonight but I still continued onto the Perth foreshore.   It just goes to show that you should listen to your gut feeling!  Instinct is a powerful tool.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!   Now its time to hit the beach to see what I can get.

      Thanks Marky Mark. Where at Rotto did you shoot last night? Longreach? I was out at Trigg this evening and got some really nice colours.

      Hi Steven,

      Thanks very much mate. I got to admit, I was disappointed at first when I saw the sunset, but when I saw the subtle colours at home on the Mac I was stoked.
