Well any trip along the south coast of Western Australia wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Denmark, and especially Greens Pool. It is some of the most beautiful coastline, and I could easily have spent a week there. With the weather we had after here I wondered this even more. Hopefully i’ll be spending a couple of days again here in the near future!
Basically my whole trip was full of bad light, with only 3 out of 10 days giving me anything to use. Luckily for me, even though it wasn’t a fantastic sunset as such, there was some nice light for me to use. I’m forever asked how that is possible, as most people relate a good sunset as good light. But anyone who takes photos at these times, especially longer exposures will know that some days the light is just flat. And there’s really nothing you can do about it.
Scouting the rocks really was hard, as there was so many compositions I liked. I saw this crack filled with water early on, but as it wasn’t quite ready I shot different spots. They didn’t work out too well and about 20 min after sunset with hardly any light I thought i’d better get here before it was too late. I’m glad I did!
The crack was such a nice lead in, and the soft glow on the rocks on the left were begging to be photographed. The waves spilling over the rocks in the middle of the scene really appealed to me. The sky was pretty plain but shooting directly South gives the sky the fade through to the blue which I love so much. It ended up being one of my favorite shot’s from the trip.
Then as we left from here was where I took my sunset shot. i did cover this briefly in my Canning Show post before. So I won’t bore you with that again 🙂
