Valentine Photowalk & Sunset

It was my photo group’s last shoot of the year yesterday. It was a bit of a crazy shoot – we went to Valentine for the sunset, only to get hammered by a storm which sent us scurrying for cover and ended the shoot early.

Then on the way home, the sky absolutely exploded with colour. It was one of the best sunsets of the year and typically I’d left my camera in the car! At least I managed to get a few shots with my phone.

It was a pity that we missed the sunset at Valentine as it would have been spectacular there too but oh well, another time. And it was definitely an interesting way to end our photowalks for 2021! 😀

Valentine Sunstars

This photo is from Valentine a couple of weeks ago. The light was beautiful and I was able to get the setting sun in just the right spot for a double sunstar. Very happy with how it came out. I also did a timelapse at the same time which is below.

I spent a couple of hours in Valentine this afternoon, walking around the wharf and lakefront with my photography group. It was fun and good exercise to boot.

I haven’t gone through all the photos yet but I liked this one of the pelican. I really love the silhouette and the beautiful golden light. I thought I’d stuffed the shot up at the time as I hadn’t checked my settings but it came out pretty well in the end.

And yes, if you’re wondering, I named the pelican Mr Percival. Of course. 😀
