    stunning art!

  • thanks Tereza I couldn’t believe my luck with just enough sea mist in the air to give off these rays. Not 2 monutes later they were gone.

    WOW, I would switch to Canon if I could – JUST ONCE – see rays like that in WA.

    Damn fine job catching it mate and congratulations on your feature.

  • Richard, thank you, I was lucky in getting those rays, lucky in being in the right place and the right time.

    If there’s one thing I KNOW about landscapes mate is there’s no luck involved. It’s about putting yourself out there to get what Mother Nature offers. I don’t know how many times I’ve cursed myself for missing something like this because I was eating, or mowing the lawn!!! Kudos to you mate, it’s a stunner.


  • I hear you loud and clear on that. The last time I did an early morning shoot like this was over a year ago.
