Moody Shorncliffe

Over the last 4 1/2 years since I bought my DSLR, I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with other photographers around south-east Queensland and New South Wales. It has been a great experience to connect with like-minded people and to learn a little more about shooting in certain conditions.

One thing I have noticed is that so many photographers are obsessed with "chasing colour" and anything less than extremely brilliant sunrises and sunsets aren't worth shooting.

I am passionate about shooting landscapes, no matter how stunning the sunrises & sunsets are. I am just as happy with the bright reds, oranges & yellows of an intense sunrise or sunset as I am with the pastel mauves, pinks and blues of a moody one.

I also love shooting during the day, capturing the contrasts of green landscapes & blue skies.

Below is a moody sunrise taken at Shorncliffe Pier back in 2014... I loved the pastel hues. This pier is currently being fully refurbished to preserve this slice of history.

Believe it or not, Liz, I am sure that I like the moody ones better.
I find them much more peaceful than I do the brightly colored ones.
This is a beautiful series of photographs.
Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
