South African seascape shot in Mosselbaai.
This morning I was going out to sea and was mesmerized by this scene of a cloudy sky and divided sea. I was lucky to have these seagulls in the shot, moving as if they were trying to avoid crossing the border and getting onto the dark side. It reminded of the South African Apartheid and all the discrimination that still exists today. Shot at ISO 100, 1/400, f/4.0, 17 mm
Golden sunset photographed at low tide on North Stradbroke Island, Australia.
While taking a walk on the island I live on, my eyes were attracted by a scene of a boat resting on an exposed sandflat at low tide, with a wonderful golden sunset in the background. I tried to compose the image so that all the elements would lead the eye to the sun setting behind a mystical cloud mass. Shot at ISO 100, 1/250, f/10.0
Sunrise scene photographed in Byron Bay, Australia.
For this shot I was aiming to get on the site for an early sunrise session but ended up arriving late. Instead, I was lucky to observe this scene of a sailboat cruising peacefully, with the sun making its way up high in the sky through a thick layer of stormy clouds. Shot at ISO 100, 1/250, f/9.0
