A Wonderful End to the Day


Over the last few days the sunsets over the ocean have been spectacular. This pic was taken yesterday at Leighton Beach as I was on my way for a little drawing practice with fellow artists in Fremantle. Leighton Beach is near Fremantle Port so ships are always anchored offshore in Gage Roads waiting to dock in the harbour. There seems to be more ships anchored offshore these days and a quick look at the Fremantle Ports 2011 Annual Report showed that container trade was at a record for the year. While this part of the beach looks quiet, not far away wind surfers were skimming over the water and people swimming in the warm weather conditions. A beautiful evening and one beautiful sunset. A wonderful way to end the day, welcome in the evening and set the scene for a little creativity!

  3. A stunning sunset shimmering on the water! Loved maxing the photo to see the details of the walkers, surfer, and sand.

  4. You have captured the crepuscule hour beautifully Rae - it must be the time of year because we are experiencing a stretch of spectacular sunsets- wonder ambiance to this pic.

  5. Apart from the stunning colour, I like the balance of this shot with the two ships in one corner and the two people in the opposite corner and the sun and kite drawing your eye to the middle.
