My eldest daughter basking in the warm glow of sunset.

We’d just had dinner at the nearby Penneshaw Hotel (the food was actually quite good – a little on the pricy side but good none the less). We had some time to spare before we wandered down the road to join an evening tour with the Penneshaw Penguin Centre.

I’d brought my camera gear (of course) so my eldest and I literally walked down to the rocks below the hotel and found of course this fabulous area looking north west.

Again we had a nice array of golden orange lichen covered rocks – tho you can see in these images that where the normal tide comes up the rocks are clean and steely grey (presumably the salt water kills the lichen).

My first few compositions this evening were situated above these points of rocks aiming out to sea and covered in an array of colourful lichen.

The one above with my daughter sitting patiently watching the sun go down, then she moved out of the way whilst I tried some long exposures – first with the Lee LittleStopper and then one with the BigStopper.

They both turned out quite nicely but in the end I preferred the shorter LittleStopper variant
