Afternoon Light

This has been one of my favorite photo’s for quite some time. This is taken from Bluff knoll looking west over the Western half of the Stirling Ranges some 370km south of Perth. There were some clouds building around the summits of the peaks in the afternoon. I decided to head up at the last minute to try and get some sunset shot’s from the summit with the clouds in the picture.

I was half way up when i saw this magical light to my right. I scouted around for some foreground interest and loved the way the light hit the leaves of the grass tree. I framed it with the Eucalypts as i also liked the redness caught in the leaves.

After taking a few exposures i headed up the rest of the hill. I made it up for the sunset but unfortunately the clouds came in so i couldn’t get any shot’s i was initially after. I was more then happy with this shot though.
