Colby Brown Photowalk – Bondi Sunset…

by on Mar.30, 2013, under Life, Photography

Just after the end of the Sydney Bronte to Bondi Photowalk sponsored by Samsung and Google Australia, Hosted by Colby Brown and Michael Sutton a number of us headed down to the beach to try our luck with some sunset and twilight imagery.

There were still quite a number of people on the beach and in the surf even on sunset. There wasn’t much of note in the west and we weren’t going to have enough time to make it up around the northern end of the beach so I just setup on the wet sand for some reflective shots looking north east away from the sunset.

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Ten minutes before sunset and we’ve got some wicked reflections of light coming back from the windows of buildings in the distance and the clouds in the sky

Right on sunset and a lone surfer looks out to sea – thankfully he’s stayed still for my 1 second exposure…

… and in the end the beach was empty, the photographers gone, as the last traces of light dwindled away…

This was the last shot of the day – taken looking south along the beach about 20 minutes after sunset, a 20 second exposure @ f//11 at ISO 100 and 19mm

Days End

and then it was off to join Colby, Michael and some other friends for a well deserved dinner in Bondi
