It’s been a while since I last blogged, so I thought it was time to post another post! In the past I have given tips about photography and explained about camera settings etc. Now I am going to start to tell you about the photos I have taken and how I took them. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Pink Sky Over Freshwater Beach


Located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Freshwater Beach does not receive the tourist crowds as much as other Sydney beaches. The name originally comes from a freshwater stream that once ran down to the beach and into the sea. The stream may no longer be there, but the beauty of this beach still remains.

This photo was taken on the southern end of the beach looking north at sunset. As the tide was fairly high and the waves were breaking over the rocks,  I wanted to capture this. The way to do this with a still camera is to use a long exposure. So after some experimenting, I used a long exposure of 10 seconds. As a result, the waves look white and wispy over the rocks and give a surreal effect to the final image. Long exposures aren’t something that can be done hand held, so the camera was set up on a tripod with 2 Lee soft graduated filters to balance the sky with the land and water. The sky was amazing that evening!
