    Queensland, Australia

    Hello you all.
    This is a sunset on Moore Park Beach, Queensland, Australia.
    Because the orientation of the beach I only can take sunsets in June when the sun is close to the north.
    To be able to have an interesting FG also I need to take the shot during low tide. The weather condition is very important to have a nice sky.
    As a result I have about 7 days in the year to take this type of shots.
    Nikon D300s, Tokina 12-24 f/4, manffrotto tripod and ballhead.

    Hello Arthur

    Welcome to CiC from a fellow Queenslander ( the best place to live on this planet !) That's a very nice shot to start with and you have obviously done your homework before hand in relation to shooting conditions.

    I had an idea that Moore Park beach was just north of Mackay ?

    Keep posting
    Cheers Dave

    Ah OK - I'd heard of it but I was a little way out with it's location (probably about 600 Km !)

    A lovely shot Arthur, well worth all the planning and effort. Lovely sky and the WA lens has certainly produced a unique effect in the clouds, quite a WOW shot in my books!

    Absolutely beautiful beach image Arthur, and it definitely looks as if you have done
    your homework and received an "A" grade for the effort.

    Thank you all for the comments.
    Here is another one where I composed it trying to complement the diagonal lines in the sky with the lines in the wave and the trees in the shore line.
