"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." Ansel Adams


After watching the sky all day on saturday and knowing it would be a good sunset and then actually seeing how amazing it really was, I had to go out Sunday arvo. I was down at the beach and noticed some nice clouds on the horizon so knew they would be rolling through later. Have been wanting to shoot Lake monger for a while cause It provides a very simple composition. I didnt expect to get such nice colour though!

This image has had a minor levels adjustment and brightened up a little with a screen layer. Have to make sure that levels layer is set to luminosity otherwise the reds were blowing out.

  2. Nice simple comp Dylan love the colors. I’d clone out that little dark line though it can be a little distracting …

    Great shot mate, you don’t get skies like that too often.

    I was in the same boat on Saturday mate. I knew it was going to be on but I had other things to do. Like yourself I just had to watch. It was bloody good, I’m sure someone on here caught something.
    I ended up down at Hillarys Boat Harbour for Sundays sunset so hopefully I also came away with something.

  8. Yeah Sean a license certainly helps when your a landscape photographer!

    Luke mate I wasnt pretty busy on Saturday…. drinking….
    Hope you got some hillarys shots for the blog!

    Kirk I have probably got a few more, but I dont think theres anything to incredible left! I think at the moment I have about 20 odd new American shots, so all in all a very successful trip!
