Collaroy Beach

Taken at Collaroy Beach last night after sunset.  The tungsten lighting presents an issue when editing these shots, as it puts an orange/magenta cast over the image, but it can also work quite well.  I think I prefer this lighting effect for dawn rather than dusk, as the light is a lot softer and it compliments the environment.  Gorgeous evening to be out shooting, nice warm breeze, loads of people out swimming, running and just enjoying what is left of the “summer” weather.  If the cloud cover wasn’t so heavy I would have stuck around to shoot some star trails.

Technical specs: 9 march 2011, 1940hr, iso100, f/13, 24mm, 15 secs, 5 images stitched, ps cs5, canon l series 24-70mm, lee soft grad filter 0.6, canon 1d mk iv



My final pre-dawn image from this morning at Collaroy – will definitely be heading back here to grab a pink/purple sunrise soon, nice location and loads of compositions to shoot!

Collaroy Ocean Baths

The colours were so vibrant at dawn this morning, no pink sunrise, but the blues were worth the 4am wake-up!  Nice & warm, nearly warm enough for a morning dip!


Was down at Collaroy Ocean Baths this morning waiting for sunrise and saw these lines on the bath steps – thought it would be something different…
