On showing this photo to a friend he admired the way I had patiently waited for the sun to reach just the right spot before taking the picture. In reality this shot was taken in a frantic hurry, I had sped down to the Prom trying to get there before sunset. Parked the car sprinted down to the beach set up the tripod and composed the shot, changed lenses ran another 50m down the beach recomposed levelled the camera and pressed the shutter. As a matter of course I always release the shutter on a ten second delay to avoid camera shake. On this particular occasion I was convinced the rapidly setting sun would disappear before the shutter tripped. Fortunately it all came together in the end.
This shot along with 107 others is available in my book The Prom – Wilsons Promontory National Park, Victoria, Australia
