Fading Light (5X2C5199)
Fading light as the sun disappears behind Canal Rocks, near Yallingup, South West, Western Australia.
Taken from a similar vantage point as the image “Rugged Beauty”, this image was kept in colour to reflect the water and pink / purple sunset that was starting to show now that the sun had dropped below the horizon and its colour could be seen under the clouds.
I also employed a panoramic format created by stitching several images together, so that the entire scene before me could be appreciated. Whilst in colour, it’s darker exposure which contrasts with the icey blue of the misted water is still conveys a depressed mood.
Titled “Fading Light” to reflect the fading light of the scene.
Canal rocks are a series of rocky outcrops lined up close together, just off the mainland near Smiths Beach at Yallingup in the South West of Western Australia, which form a canal like passage between the rocks on the mainland and the rocky outcrops in the sea. A heavily visited and photographed location.
