Sitting by the sea,
Watching a distant sun set
On another day
I took this photo on Wednesday afternoon near Bondi Beach. I’d just been to see the Sculptures by the Sea exhibit; it had been raining heavily all day and I was well and truly soaked but just as I reached the promenade overlooking the beach, it stopped and the sun came out. The light lit the water beautifully and I took a quick shot with my 60D. I really like how it came out, particularly the colours.
It started raining again a few minutes later and the light disappeared. I hurried to get under shelter but I guess I was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time; a minute or two later and I’d have missed the shot completely.
I took a number of shots at the Sculptures exhibit as well but this ended up being my favourite of the day, mostly because it was so unexpected. It just shows how much natural beauty there is all around us… we just need to know how to see it.
