Chasing the Light

This month I am sharing a new photo taken at Anna Bay at a place I call ‘prayer rock’ (it’s near Anna Bay Reef). For this sunset there were absolutely no clouds around the sun leaving a relatively boring sky. To the East however, I noticed some high and wispy clouds which I know from experience reflect beautiful colours after the sun drops below the horizon.

I drove around to a few places to check out the position of the clouds over various compositions and ended up setting up at this place. I quite like the result, particularly cropped in a 2:1 ratio as shown below.

The lesson here is to not get so stuck on a location that you miss the best light. Chase the light and find a composition that works with it.
