Colour of the Afterglow

Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 25 April 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.


I have not posted all the photos from our trip to Europe last year just yet, however, I wanted to post something more recent. This photo was taken just a week ago at my favourite spot in Perth - Burns Beach. If you have been following me for a while, you would have no doubt heard about it already ;-)

Come late Autumn and Winter months, it transforms from a pristine white sandy beach into a maze of strangely shaped rocks and crevices. It becomes my hunting ground for seascape photography when I want to head out somewhere close to home.

I have been learning some new techniques and this photo is one of my first where I tried blending two exposures together. One was for sky and the water and the second one I used to blend in the shadow detail of the rocks. While I prefer to capture my photos in one exposure where possible, I realise the limitations of my camera in terms of its dynamic range capabilities and I intend to explore exposure blending a bit further this year.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 5/2 seconds F/16.0 ISO 100 16 mm
