Cottesloe Vertical

21 01 2009


Headed out for a shot this afternoon with Neal seeing as there was nice cloud cover about .

We were originally going to go some where over the Swan River but at the last minute decided to head to Cottesloe . We should have sticked to the original location as there was some great colors over the swan river this afternoon , the sunset at Cottesloe was a bit of a let down as the clouds were in the wrong location . Still managed to get a few shots , this was a 4 image vertical stitch .

Hope these sunset are a just of taste of things to come , as Summer sunsets have been a bit of a fizzle so far this year .

Nice colours, I actually like the composition better with the bottom 1/3rd cropped off, try that 🙂

Nice shot Kirk.. I had taken a similar shot myself years ago on velvia 50. My exposure was about 14 minutes. I got the same look as this.

Hi Kirk,

I LOVE the colours in this. Especially the water, it really conveys a feeling of serenity. Well done!

Reminds me of my cott shot! Well my favourite one anyway.
I think the horizon is too central, and its too long. I would go with Flemming on the crop!
Great colours!
