Weekend Wanderings: A Trip to the Coast

blairgowrie-beach-sunset-water-0765

Yesterday afternoon a spare of the moment decision was made to see if we could catch a sunset. We didn’t know where, but then I had also had an email about the possibility of some Aurora action. That decided it for us and we headed down to Blairgowrie, to one of the back beaches.

We drove all the way down there and when we got there there was a lovely glow over the beach, golden hour. As the sun went down it was clear that it was going to be a pathetic sunset.

We stuck around hoping to see the Aurora Australis. Or is that Australis Aurora? Again it was fairly clear that it wasn’t going to be possible to see as there were too many clouds. So the whole trip was a bit of a waste, but it is always fun to go out and take photos.

I have a small gallery for you so you can see what I got. I hope you had better luck this weekend.

  7. Every image is lovely. I especially like the clouds with the bit of orange in them.

    If you don’t go you can’t make the shot. You tried which is more than most people do…only we nutso photographers get that. Keep on going even if there’s a slim chance. It’s the slim chance, and the knowledge and experience of an area that brings in the “money shot”! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Deborah, wasn’t quite as bright as I was hoping.

      That is for sure, you just have to try. I hope one day I will get an amazing sunset, one day, it has to happen eventually, right. I think you are right, we are the only ones that really get it.

  14. Lovely photos. I think you must be spoiled if you think this was a poor sunset πŸ™‚ I like it better when there are a few clouds.

    November 9, 2015
    • I think we do get spoiled here, there was no red in it, we like to see lots of red Maxine, and have it going right up in the sky. It was the right number of clouds, but that was all. Thank you. πŸ™‚

      November 9, 2015
      • Well… Maybe a little greedy πŸ™‚
