Sometimes Facebook and Instagram just go mad. I had been out that afternoon for a medical appointment and saw that the sky looked quite promising. I had for once packed my camera in the boot. This thanks to a reminder that day from follow ‘tog and friend Sinead, and I always have the tripod.
I started my drive home from Mona Vale through Kuring-gai Chase National Park to Bobbin Head and stopped a couple of times prior to this. Can you believe that just at the exact time as I got down to the water’s edge at Bobbin Head the sky did this? The colour lasted around five minutes. When I first arrived the colour was all around. However, by the time I took this, it had faded to only the westerly direction. I took in that time around 5 compositions in total.
It would be very rare to get any colour in that area, given how tall the cliffs are around the water. I suspect it’s not the kind of shot that might remind you that as kid ‘wow the sunsets were amazing down on the water at Bobbin Head’. It was truly a surreal experience to be there. Especially as the trees were doing their wonderful autumnal show.
It’s a four blend image to get the smooth tones.
