Mindil Beach…

by on Aug.03, 2015, under Photography

In the evening we went to the famous Mindil Beach markets, we had dinner there and watched the fabulous sunset out to sea over the beach.

NIKON D750 + 28.0-300.0 mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 85 mm, 1/100 sec at f/6.3, ISO 1600

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.

The pre-sunset and sunset (as they usually are up here) was red – insanely, unbelievably red!. With the beach exposed at low tide the reflections on the rippled wet sand surface of Mindil beach was superb.

NIKON D750 + 28.0-300.0 mm f/3.5-5.6 @ 210 mm, 1/250 sec at f/11, ISO 220

Sure I wished I’d had my tripod, but I was on holidays. The D750 shot handheld with my new travel lens (the Nikon 28-300mm) would have to do.

As it got darker I had to push the ISO higher and higher. I’m actually pretty damn impressed with the D750’s high ISO performance. This shot at an eye watering ISO 12,800 taken at the end of twilight is testament to that…
