One of Australia’s largest photographic collections by an individual photographer. Great Ocean Road Galleries added to my website, over 250 images in 5 separate photographic galleries. Over 20 years of photographing this iconic tourism hotspot.
Every once in a while you encounter a sunrise/sunset that leaves you breathless and this sunset at Gibsons Beach was one of those occasions, leading up to this moment the sky and clouds were quite dull and not showing to much promise in terms of producing an exquisite light show but in the final moments the clouds opened just enough to let the sunlight through and what happened next was truly magical for a photographer, which goes to show that you should wait until the last moment until packing your camera gear away.
Sometimes you may have to do a little bit of ground work to find what your looking for, especially when your in search of new and unusual subject matter. Getting away from the main tourist platforms and finding new ground so to speak, goes along way when coming up with something new.
Push yourself and your boundaries a bit further each time, sometimes a little change makes a big difference.
These images were captured in Port Campbell along the Great Ocean Road, a place called Loch Ard Gorge and the Razorback. Not from the usual viewing areas, to capturing these images required some trekking through heavy shrubs and grasses, which house a few of snakes. so, its best to move quickly.
Early morning at Gibson Beach, Great Ocean Road, Port Campbell. As the sun baths the famous rock stacks known as “gog and magog.” in all its glory. Getting up early is worth it when you are greeted with this kind of reception.
As the storm passes, clouds open and the sun appears, the light illumninates the landscape, providing mood and atmosphere. The conditions can change very quickly, so never walk away to soon or you may just miss the best light.
