North Cotteloe Sunset

Last Friday night I decided to head down to North Cottesloe Beach to unwind and relax and of course to get some photos!  North Cottesloe was the best I’d seen in ages so I started to snap away.

It was such an beautiful evening, warmish for a winters day and there was almost no wind around.   The swell was really nice and these waves were just coming through every couple of minutes.  Simply sensational.

I noticed that the gold light was shining right through these waves so I threw on my 70-200mm lens and started banging away.  When I got home and saw this photo I was pretty ecstatic!

I hope you guys enjoy it.  How does it make you feel?

    Nice job from the shore with the 70-200. Love the colour of the light shining through that wave.

      Hi Mark. Thanks mate. It was an awesome afternoon with lots of great swell. Heaps of people were out surfing.

      Hi Peta. Thank you. That is what I love about this shot, the blown glass / melting gold effect.
