Townsville Dawn Shoot

I got up at about 0435 last saturday to try and catch the sunrise on the Strand in Townsville. It was my first experience of actually intentionally going out for a landscape photoshoot and it was a good experience. I was also going with my friend and it was interesting to learn about working with other photographers with conflicting shooting styles and aims for photos (particularly with a time limit). The shot above is a longer exposure with Magnetic Island in the background, I really like the way the water plays around the rocks in the midground with that smooth long exposure feel.
Sadly we never found a particularly good shot to see the sun rising but I did get some great landscape shots which I hope you’ll enjoy.

With this shot I like the shape of the shoreline curving around to the right and the way the sky lightens as you get closer to the sun behind the cliffs.

With this one I really liked the golden tones of the sun rising over the water and the reflection of the top of the structure on the jetty. The industrial silhouette of the port on the horizon in the rear has a really strong profile.If you like any of these shots you can purchase them buy going to the link below or clicking on the photo and going to the buy photo option.
