A Byron Bay Sunset

It has been a while, I know! I haven’t completely fallen off the face of the Earth. I’ve still be working hard on my photography.

Earlier this month my girlfriend, Allanah, and I were fortunate enough to spend a little over a week visiting various locations around South-East Queensland. For the first 4 days we were based on the Gold Coast staying in the amazing Q1 Resort and Spa, and for the remainder of the trip a good photographer friend of mine, Simon Beedle, was kind enough to let us crash on his sofa in his apartment at Dicky Beach on the Sunshine Coast.

We kept busy during our quick trip to the East Coast and managed to visit a heap of locations around the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. One of the first evenings of the trip we shot down to Byron Bay and managed to capture some nice light from The Pass at sunset which you can see in the photo below.

I will be posting more regularly here from now on, hopefully including some tutorials, hints and tips style blogs, and also sharing more of my new photographs with you all.

Byron Bay Lighthouse, Byron Bay, NSW

I’ve recently returned from a trip to the Gold Coast to catch up with a good friend of mine, Darren Tierney. We were lucky enough to head south and spend a day at Byron Bay in New South Wales under perfect weather conditions.

Watching the clouds build a couple of hours before sun set, we suspected it was going to be a ripper. After shooting Wategos Beach for a short while, we headed up to the lighthouse to watch the sun set. We weren’t wrong with our suspicion, as the light cloud cover lit up a nice pink hue.

I am very happy with the result after attempting to shoot this location many times and coming away with nothing spectacular. Persistence pays off!
