Sunset – Sunrise New Year 2012 -2013   1 comment

Each year I try and photograph New Years Eve Sunset, and then New Years Day Sunrise.

First we will start with the New Years Eve Sunset – everything worked for this shot, the light, the colour/the camera settings – and instead of processing the ‘Raw’ image as I normally would this is a Jpeg straight from the camera, besides a border and a Water Mark totally untouched.

OK, woke up at 3.30am – was concerned with the low tide, heavy cloud moving in and high winds from previous day if it was worth going or not – thinking going back to bed a good option – looked outside – little tree movement – winds had dropped – see a few stars – ok, so looking promising, although the bed was also looking very tempting still. So where could I go where the low tide would not overly unfluence the type of photos I could take – only option realy was Manly Boat Harbour – as no rocky headlands within driveable distance in the time I had before sunrise at 4.55am.

I get there, ok not too bad, still alot of heavy cloud on horizon, but little wind.

Took a few predawn shots, but nothing exciting and closer to sunrise we see a bit of colour and then it is gone.

The two following images were taken in that brief period of colour.

Ok, this one required quite a bit of work, and was created through a HDR style merging of two images, with a little colour enhancement.

The second one taken a few minutes later looking back to the left of the previous one, the colour is starting to fade, so again a little enhancement in photoshop to get some of the colour back.

Hope you enjoy them, and a Happy New Year to everyone.

Cheers Dave

Surfs Up – Currumbin Beach   Leave a comment

A few more from last Sunday, these were taken from the Viking Surf Life Saving Club at Currumbin, while were having a lovely breakfast of sausages and eggs.

Was a beautiful morning down there, once the clouds cleared,the sun came out, and the waves were huge, with a big high tide pushing through, great for some spectacular surfing displays

Currumbin Sunday Sunrise – except there was no sun !   Leave a comment

We got up at 2.30 am last Sunday morning to head down the Gold Coast ( about an hour away) for a Pre – Christmas meet up of a Photography Group, I am randomly involved in.

So after an uneventful drive down there, except having to go through the McDonalds drive through twice, as we decided our first purchases might not be enough to sustain us until brekky much later in the morning, we were greeted by a very cloudy sky ( not predicted).

Below are a few of the photos I did capture on the day.

 

Canon 7D and Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens
