Twilight Beach, Esperance

    Newer Older

    After a marathon seven hour journey from Perth to Esperance I arrived to find the same cloudless sky I had been witnessing for the past two weeks. The beaches and water look amazing under a blue sky due to the pristine white sand beaches and turquoise seas but it wasn't the conditions I was after. I ended up shooting a very harsh cloudless sunset and headed straight to bed hoping that the sunrise was going to be something special the next morning.

    My alarm went off at 3.45 the following morning and I peered out through the window to see blood red clouds. Alarm bells are instantly ringing, its an hour before sunrise and the clouds are just amazing, I've never seen clouds reflecting so much colour in an almost black night sky.

    I drove as fast as I could down to Twilight Beach, a place I spent many afternoons trying to surf and fishing many years ago, the twilight sky now more vibrant than anything i had seen for a very long time. This was one of the first exposures I made on this particular morning, I just loved the ripples in the sand and the way the light was reflecting across them. I also made some images using just the ripples as the light started to become more golden a little later on. This is the kind of light I dream about and I normally only get to witness colours like this from the window at home after deciding not to venture down to the coast or from equally annoying places like the supermarket car park!
