What an amazing sky we had tonight. I think it might have been the best one of the year so far. It was like the whole horizon caught on fire. So beautiful and to think I almost didn’t go down to shoot it as it was cloudy for much of the day. Glad I did! 🙂
Some photos from Squid’s Ink jetty in Belmont last night. It was a really beautiful, vibrant sunset and the dusk seemed to last for a long time afterwards as well, with the lovely hues intermingling with the clouds.
The clouds were moving quite quickly so I tried a couple of quite long exposures (over three minutes each) at the end to try and capture some movement in the scene. I like how they turned out, I think they’re some of my favourite photos of the year so far.
A purple and yellow sky Dotted with clouds Marks the end Of a long day
This is from a couple of weeks ago, by the new Belmont Baths. I’m really enjoying exploring the baths and jetty, there are a lot of fantastic opportunities for photos, particularly now there are less people around.
Tall grass Sways gently in the breeze As the sun sets On another day
I took this a few days ago down by the lakefront in Belmont. The sky had just started to turn this beautiful orangey-yellow and there was a lovely cool breeze as well blowing through the trees and grass. I knew the sunset would make for a nice photo but I really wanted to try to capture the feel of the breeze and motion in the image too, so I thought I’d try to juxtapose the gently moving grass with the sunset. It took me a couple of shots to get it right but I really like this one… it’s simple but really gives the slight feel of motion which I was going for.
