Like other photographers I do love those precious minutes when the sun is very low in the sky. Cherie of Weekly Photo Challenge is focussed on The Golden Hour this week. I am still sorting the holiday photos so I cannot go back into the archive right now, but with short winter days while we were away I had plenty of early morning and later afternoon shots to choose from.
Sun was close to setting as we walked back to meet the dinghy on this unnamed beach in the Buccaneer Archipelago, Western Australia.
Here the low sun is illuminating the fantastic rocks of Gantheaume Point, Broome, Western Australia. That beach in the distance is Cable Beach, a mecca for tourists and locals looking for a beach holiday. Every day a team of camels take people along the beach at sunrise!
Nitmiluk Gorge is one of the best known in Australia, easily accessible to travellers on the road between Alice Springs and Darwin. We took the dinner cruise, photographing these magnificent stony walls in the afternoon light, before we enjoyed a luxurious dinner while watching the full moon rise over the craggy landscape.
Birdwatching in Marlgu Billabong is incredibly special! As the day comes to a close the birds fly in to roost for the night. There is a great buzz of activity, as the nocturnal Whistling Ducks wake, and others begin to organise themselves for rest. I can’t finish this post without a sunset photo …. the Kimberley skies are powerfully coloured, passing through a huge range of shades morning and evening.
