This is the second image from pretty cool sunset at Wylie Creek, near Esperance. As you can see, sunlight has huge impact on sand such as this. With the previous image I posted being pure white- to this golden yellow sand. Within about 10 minutes, the sand went from beautiful white, to freakin awesome gold! 🙂
This is one of the few parts of the dunes which weren’t torn up, or scattered with litter and campfires, which as I touched on in my previous post was incredibly disappointing. I was even there midweek, so the wind did have some time to cover up the evidence of the weekends activities. I probably shouldn’t go saying this otherwise i’m sure you’d imagine this image was taken in some remote area, relatively untouched.
I guess that’s why photography is such a powerful thing, as we can take the parts from a scene that we wish to remember- and until some fool blabs like me, no one would even no what else was around it 🙂
Either way it’s an image i’m quite happy with, the lovely light and slight ripples were stunning. I was really drawn to the nice reeds on the slope. I passed up a close up image of them for another scene, which didn’t work out too well anyway. Perhaps not the right thing to have done, but if we got it right first time everything would be boring I reckon lol. 😛
