Esperance Sunrise

Had some free time last night and managed to stitch another image from my trip to the South West of Western Australia recently .

This shot was taken at sunrise in Twilite Cove at Esperance , got some really intense colors at the sunrise that morning but they didn’t hang around for long . Found it quite difficult shooting Twilite Cove that morning just with the position of the sunrise to the cove , Also found it hard to hold back the sky with my cheap cokin filters had stacked 2 on and didn’t want to stack any more due to color cast problems , wont be having that problem as my Lees filters arrived a few weeks back now just waiting on my Stinghray filters to arrive . The red channel was also easy to blow out shooting under these conditions .

Was origningally a Ten image stitch but croped it down to about 8 images . Would love to be back down in Esperance the coast line is amazing , hopefully will be able to head back down for a few days before the end of the year .

Incredible sunrise. Incredible place. Your shots are always full of colour. You always manage to pull whatever you can out of the sky.

I don’t know a whole lot about lenses for full frame cameras, but can you buy an ultra wide for them? i suppose even if you did, some stitching may still be necessary in order to get the panoramic look. i just bought an ef-s 10-22mm canon lens for my 1000d. hopefully it’s fun to use 🙂

great colours here, nice pink tones. the water looks walkable on (don’t you just love my english)
