I set out at sunset this evening to see what I could find as the build up on the horizon looked like it might go nuts.
On arrival at the famous cliff area known as Dutch In, I found a couple of guys soaring up and down the cliffs on their para gliders. The wind seemed to be border line as they weren’t getting an abundance of lift, but they were having a lot of fun for sure.
I also met a nice young bloke from Canada who has only recently taken up photography, but he was kitted out with all the good gear…Canon 5DMK2 and a 24-70 Zoom. He is featured in the bottom shot.
This shot was taken 180 degrees from last nights shot, which shows just how widespread the colours were.
The Bathurst lighthouse is an iconic part of Rottnest Island and was the backdrop for the wedding photos from the mornings wedding that was held at Parker Point. These guys nailed the weather for sure with picture perfect light and clouds happening all day!
As you may have gathered by some of the other Blogger’s posts this evening, the sunset was pretty special!
Rottnest was no exception to the lead up so Flemming Bo Jensen and I set out to see what we could get. We decided to go around to Pinkies beach as the build up all around there was showing promise and for sure we ended up in the right spot.
One never tires of the golden colours of a Rottnest sunset!
As you would have seen on some of the blogs from yesterday, there was a pretty cool sunset last night and one of my more favorite images from last night was actually pre-sunset looking back to Perth. There was an unusual grey cloud with an array of straight and coloured light beams creating a very unusual effect in the sky.
The final hoorah out to the west was a very fiery end to the day out over the Western Lighthouse.
