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.
I love Cable Beach in Broome. Awesome blue skies and beautiful green water sums it all up for me. On this particular day we decided not to go swimming as the lifeguards had spotted a 2M crocodile swimming up and down the beach and we thought it might not be too good for our health.
This shot was taken with the Canon 17mm TSE lens which seems to be able to create amazing skies out of almost nothing.
In this photo the tide was about halfway out and it certainly doesn’t take long for the tide to rise or fall up at Broome. It took a bit of getting used to the tides. The first two days I found spots I liked whilst the tide was rising thinking that I would have plenty of time to get a shot, when in actually fact I ended up at least 100M further back from where I expected to be!
I hope you guys like this shot. Let me know what you think of it.
