Wallis Lake paradise by Alex Howen

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Located near Forster on the mid north coast of New South Wales, this image suggests a painting like quality.

I was on my home to Sydney after doing some business in Forster. I spotted a side road that appeared to lead to the lake so my curiousity got the better of me. The lakeside scene was just outstanding. I arrived well before sunset and watched the light change every few minutes. I was still in a suit, so I must have looked a strange standing on the lake’s beach waiting for perfect moments.

I knew this image would be good from the moment I pressed the shutter release. The lighting was perfect and my patience was rewarded.

    Splendid composition and colors!!

  • Thanks for your comment. This image only happened because I always carry a camera. I took this while driving home from Sydney after a business trip. I was curious about a road going to a beach on the lake, explored the area and found this view!!! Curiosity is a good state of mind for a photographer.
