Planks on the Beach



I think we are near the finish of the images from the Salterstown, Dunny and Port locations from Monday. At this stage we were on the final leg home with a stop at Port Beach. Again from my previous visit I knew about the planks of wood. With the sun starting to set quickly now and I think we had about 1 hour to sunset, but with the hills and houses behind us the sun would be blocked in about 30min's. The angle and direction of the sun was just perfect to light up the surface of the planks of wood. Luck or timing, how cares, but I can safely say that was one of the most productive days I have had in a long time.
With this image above I had to wait for a person (as it happens another photographer to move out of the shot) before I would take the image and for the sun to come out from behind some clouds. It's a great feeling you get when you know after you release the shutter that you got a keeper as they say.
