Coolangatta – Gold Coast – Queensland – Australia

Canon 5D MKII – Canon EF L Lens 17-40mm

This is the back of Snapper Rocks in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast. Otherwise known as the Super Bank. A good time to capture this spot is on a high tide with a small swell, big enough to force the water over the rock ledge and get it to cascade over the pool edge. Combine these conditions with either sunrise or sunset. A big swell will still be good, although you will be constantly wiping spray mist off your filters etc.

    Great shot Maxwell – I love the overall balance, the shutter speed is just right for this scene I think. The S curve leading from front to the horizon is a great compositional element also. I reckon you have the sizing perfect for the “GIGANTIC” pic.

  • Thanks mate. Really appreciate your feedback. How good is the larger sizing. Redbubble should incorporate something like this into their own work flow options. Glad you like this one Neil :-)
