Some Moments Change Your Life For Ever:

This would have to be one of the craziest sunsets I have ever had the privilege of capturing.  Mother Nature at her absolute finest and mosst erratic. 

This is one of those sunset that you just know are going to be awesome, hours before it even happens.  You know one of those ones that you can just feel?

I headed down to the beach at least 1.5hrs before the sunset because I just couldn’t stay away from Cable Beach any longer.   I hopped out of the car and literally ran down the stairs and dare I say it almost hopped all the way down to the water line.

The excitement was just running through me and I felt charged.   Slowly but surely this amazing and crazy sunset started to appear before me, I felt like a sniper.   I had one chance at this, the next day I was on a plane back to Perth, so I had to be sure and steady and ensure all my gear was working.

With such an important shot there was never any doubt that the Canon 17mm TSE was going to be my weapon of choice.   I pulled it out, stuck it on the camera and started to bang away.   In the end, the sun fell away behind the clouds and that was it.  I was able to go home knowing that I had captured a really awesome sunset.  One that had the craziest clouds that I had ever seen.   My mission was complete.

  2. Awesome shot again Jamie, the clouds are crazy aren’t they? Did you put a texture in there too or was that the clouds all on their own?

    • Hi Andrea,

      No textures at all, just plain old crazy clouds! That night was so much fun.

      • WOW Jamie, that’s even cooler, I thought you might have been having a bit of a play because of the way the dark blue was coming through, that’s just ridiculous that the sky can be like that. It’s amazing.

        • Hi Andrea,

          I think I’ve discovered at least one of Mark’s secret. The Canon 17mm TSE just produces amazing skies. Its mind blowing.

          • Same. I hired this 17mm TSE to see what I thought of it.

          • I’ve always thought mother nature produced the skies. 🙂 🙂

          • Good point Merv. She does. I should’ve said the 17mm seems to be able to capture those amazing skies. 🙂

      • Hi Andrea,

        That is what I thought as well. I wasn’t going to shell out a stack of money if it wasn’t for me. 🙂
