North Cottesloe Sunset

Don’t you just love an awesome sunset in winter?   The colours are still quite strong though not always as intense as summer and the water is always so moody.   I managed to capture this shot at North Cottesloe which if you haven’t discovered it yet is an amazing place for seascape photography.    There is normally heaps of interesting rocks and plenty of waves hitting them as well.  The other great thing about North Cottesloe is that the waves rarely make it past the rocks so you don’t tend to get too wet when taking photos here.

I remember last winter when I was taking shots at Bennion Beach.   It was in the middle of winter and I was taking photos when a rouge wave came thumping through.  I just managed to grab my tripod and hold it above my head before it hit me.  The wave was that strong I lost one of my thongs.   It was so funny, all these people were looking at me when I got back up to the carpark.   I was drenched from my waist down on a cold day with only one thong on!   I did eventually manage to get the other thong back.

What’s the worst thing you guys have lost while shooting?  Hope everyone has a great week this week!

Thank you for reading and commenting

    Sweet shot mate!

    I have been chased by a few rouges as well over the years and not always when I have had my camera with me! 🙂

    • Hi Dylan,

      I guess it must just be the large waves up around Trigg way. Thanks for the comment.
