Sunrise at The Edge of Earth

Posted by Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 5 June 2017 in Landscape & Rural.


Fiery sky and green moss covered rocks combine for a colourful sunrise over the rock shelf at Kiama in New South Wales. The tide was low and the swell was also very gentle so there was very little water action in this usually rough spot. Last time I was here, I would have not been able to stand anywhere close to the edge of the rocks with waves crashing over everywhere.

This time though I got some lovely sunrise colours and also wonderful green moss around the rocks. Then it was a matter of finding a good composition that worked well with all the natural elements. It was not that easy. First I was hoping to find a pool of water for some reflections but the angles just did not work for me. Afterwards I skipped around over the rocks to find a composition that would also include an interesting section of the rock shelf and a leading line or two. I finally settled on the scene that you can see in this photo. It just seemed to have the best overall balance compared to other compositions that I tried.
