Sunshine, sand, gorgeous water and not a cloud in the sky. What more could a girl ask of the first day of Spring? I decided to continue my newly revived backyard appreciation and head an hour north to Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast.
It was a spectacular day and even though a few fluffy white clouds in the sky may have livened up my landscapes, it was just incredible to be walking along the beach with a perfect blue vault above my head.
A few years ago I had visited at dawn to try my hand at capturing the soft early light against the wreck but it was a dull morning and my photos very average. I hadn’t summoned up the energy for an early shoot since but when I saw that one side of the wreck had succumbed to the waves since my last visit, I thought I had better try again. This time I decided to give sunset and my 6 stop ND filter a go, and the results weren’t bad considering I was almost knee deep in water for most of these!!
So my own backyard delivered yet again – a cracking weekend and even though there wasn’t a cloud about to add some punch to my landscapes and catch the colour of the sunset, I don’t think I can complain!
