Sunset at Wellington Point

Wellington Point, in Moreton Bay, is one of my favourite places to take in a sunset. It's not only a beautiful spot but also holds many memories for me, of my children growing up. We lived only 1km away and visited often. It's a very popular spot for families, fishing, kiteboarding, windsurfing, and strolling along the jetty.
In the Winter, it is incredibly peaceful... I often go down with my camera & lose myself in nature. With water on both sides of the point, it's perfect for sunset or sunrise.

Those small black things in the centre of the image are a camera crew, from one of the main TV stations in our city. They ignored the rising tide and got themselves stranded on the King Island (middle right of the photo). At low tide you can walk from the mainland to the island.

The camera crew were a great talking point for those enjoying the beautiful sunset. I think they added a little bonus interest in my shot too!!


Video cameras, tripods & gear all raised above heads as they entered the waist deep water...

It was a beautiful Winter sunset that night!

There are 1440 minutes in every day... 1440 opportunities to capture or appreciate a moment of beauty. What have you captured?

Maar dit is wel heel mooi om dit moment van de terug kerende cameraploeg mee te nemen in de foto het geeft echt een grote meerwaarde.
