This is another image from Two Peoples Bay, found near Albany. Very very close to the image I had in mind, and my favorite of the images i’ve got from here to this stage.
I was really drawn to the tree hanging on to the rock, as a matter of fact it had stuck in my mind ever since the first time I saw it. And I was very excited to try and use it in an image upon my return. The water here is so clear, and as it’s so shallow you can still see all the rocks on the bottom. I was actually set up further along the beach, taking images very similar to my previous photo, but with the late afternoon sun hitting the rocks. The sun went behind some thick clouds on the horizon, so I thought the chance of a good sunset had disappeared with it.
So as I waited for the light to improve, I walked down to the rocks and clambered over this scene. Just as I got here, the light went insane! What had happened was the sun was below the horizon, still with the thick cloud killing any direct light from it. But there was a lot of higher cloud, and that was acting as a huge natural reflector to the left of this, and as it lit up- cast this perfect light across the rocks and scene. I sprinted back to get my camera, and got back with minutes to spare. It was interesting balancing out on this rock, but was well worth it in the end.
