This, I think, is the image that has reignited my interest in shooting in the bright sunshine. I haven't done much in the past few years. It's such a challenge and rarely delivers anything satisfactory.
My parents are here for the weekend and we went down to Redhead for breakfast. I threw my camera bag in the car not even thinking I would be shooting anything in the bright sunshine. We arrived at Redhead, had breakfast and then went to stand on the rocks at the shark tower. The colours were overwhelming!
I asked my parents to wait and I got my camera. When I got back, there was someone sitting right in the spot I wanted to set up! Now, having seen what i got, I am grateful for that because it pushed me to do something better. And better it was!
Another wonderful thing about this image is that it will soon hang in the home of my oldest, long lost friend. We have recently reconnected and I am so humbled to hang this in her family's home!
