Broadwater – Gold Coast – Queensland – Australia

Canon EOS 450D – Canon EFS Lens 15 – 85 mm

Taken along the Gold Coast Broadwater near the Southport Yacht Club. All day the clouds were really whispy and soft, and i couldn’t wait for sunset. I thought that this location would be beautiful to catch the light rebounding off those clouds and reflecting in the water. Thankfully the wind held off and the clouds stuck around, and i was able to use those highrise buildings to give a little horizon interest.
Sometimes you can feel a little rushed when trying to make the most of the light that’s available, but this all seemed to take place in slow motion. So relaxing, only thing missing was a fishing rod.

4 Shot panorama, landscape frames.
