Our Last Evening at Cape Du Couedic…

by on Jun.14, 2015, under Life, Photography

It was to be our last evening at Cape Du Couedic so we all walked down to the arch for sunset.

Even on this rugged and exposed tip of land there’s abundant colourful natural flora. Right here off the side of the boardwalk from the carpark down to the cliffs at the end and then down under to Admirals Arch the plantlife clings to these rugged windswept cliffs for life.

After shooting my last few shots down under the Arch I’ve come back up top for sunset. Here the sun is just drifting over the horizon on the left (8:33PM) and with the few whisps of clouds gone we’re left with a hint of pastel glow across the sky.

When we got back to our Lighthouse Keepers cottage to settle in for the night (well everyone but me :)) the skies started to really clear and the moon came into view with beautiful warm and cool tones in the sky from the remnants of the setting sun. It’s 9:15PM and with the long lens I’m trying some shots literally from the front door of our cottage 🙂
