Dramatic Light - late afternoon





The late afternoon sun - with rays of light providing interesting relief and texture - was my first challenge. I captured this cyclist in motion with the sun starting to set across the lake. More water scenes in the next two shots. During the Easter break down on the South Coast, I arrived just in time to catch the last of the light across the headland at Dalmeny beach.

In the last shot, I'm back at home in Belconnen and a pre-dinner stroll along the lakeshore provided a chance to snap this pair of ducks. At first I thought I'd not got in close enough to the subject. However, the sense of space and ample reflections proved the ideal framing of the shot.
