Red Sky at Warners Bay

There has been some pretty colourful sunsets over the past week, often several days in a row. Last evening, I set up by the jetty at Warners Bay. It looks out over Lake Macquarie and is only around 15 mins from Newcastle.

Its a really nice relaxing place to be, and usually at this time of year (Summer here in Australia), there is often a lot of people about. There were quite a few people last night watching the sunset also. Here are two of my favorite shots from the evening.

Belmont Bay Again

Last weekend, I photographed another sunset at Belmont. This is from the Squids Ink jetty, looking west over the bay (Lake Macquarie). Here are some of my favourites from the evening.

This is a stitched panorama, make up from 9 bracketed vertical frames (27 frames in total). I shot this using a 5D Mark II, 50mm f1.4 lens with 3 stop ND grad filter mounted, rotated on a panoramic head.

Later on as the sun went down, I managed to capture this classic shot of the jetty. I used my favourite exposure blending technique for this, the shot is a composite of two images. I used a 17-40mm f/4L on the wide end with a ND400 filter attached, exposure around 2 minutes from memory.
