We have been so lucky with amazing clouds and skies in Melbourne lately, and I was so lucky to be at the lake when these beautiful colourful clouds started to get more and more interesting. Still learning and experiencing with light and long exposures, plenty to enjoy and learn.
Thank you all for the great support and I hope you are enjoying the sunsets.
Please like, comment, and guide me, happy to hear your stories as well.
P.S. Look at my profile to see the full picture.
This image came as a result of a lesson in patience. I headed out to the Saltair area to catch the sunset over the lake. Super optimistic because of the clouds in the sky and just the way the weather seemed to be working out. As the sun set, the colors just didn’t seem to change the way I had anticipated and hoped. They just never seemed to really change at all… it just got darker. So, I thought I would run to another location not too far away to try to get some shots of the light on the mountains, trees and tall grasses of the fields. As a result I was watching east the whole time, and when I finished what I was shooting and turned around, the colors were there. Ran back to my car, jumped in and back to where there was at least some water. Sadly, by the time I got there, the colors had almost faded completely.
Needless to say… although I didn’t get what I wanted, I still like what I did get, but learned an important lesson. Patience sometimes should win out over improvisation.
