Well I thought i’d continue on with the beach theme as I can’t wait to actually get some free time and get there myself!! This is another image from my Pilbara trip, and was taken at one of the beaches along the West side of the Exmouth Cape. I can’t remember what one exactly, but I think it was either side of Lakeside.
Looking out over the Ningaloo Reef, it is a breathtaking bit of coastline. The sand is flawless, and the water is such a fantastic blue. I didn’t have much luck with the standard beach scenes, so i tried something a bit different.
There were some small dunes right near the water so I headed into them hoping to find some nice ridges. It was a bit late in the day to get heavily contrasting ridges in the sand (a type of image I really want to get one day) but I ended up coming across this scene. I liked the small ridges following up the dune to the water. And using the plants as some natural framing to keep the scene compact. Would love to be there again! It was my first time really shooting beaches like this, and since then I have had so many ideas and compositions I want to try next time.
I’m still a bit undecided on this, so interested in peoples thoughts, And also would like to have any suggestions for what I could have done. Thanks 🙂
