Deep Red Sunset

Posted by Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 7 August 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.


Quiet times for me in terms of new photos but I still have a lot of backlog to go through. We have a lot planned for November to February and i still hope to get out once or twice here in Perth before the Summer.

This photo represents a prefect combination for me - sky lighting up with fiery sunset colours and waves creating fantastic flow in the foreground. Photos like this are why I love seascapes.

Sometimes I am lucky enough to experience conditions like this when shooting seascapes. Sometimes a bit of planning helps as well. For photographers in Europe, North America and Australia, if you have not seen it yet, there is a great little website that helps with cloud forecasts for these regions -

Keep in mind though, that it only acts as a guide to predict the extrapolated cloud coverage and movement based on satellite data and weather forecasts. It is especially useful when combined with other services such as your meteorological agency.

Welcome to my photo blog. While I may not be able to respond to everyone, I appreciate all your comments and critiques - they have all helped me to improve over the time that I have been a part of the Am3 community.

Please visit me on Flickr and 500px and Facebook as well.
