Bunker Bay is one of the prettiest beaches in this area. This shot was taken from Rocky Point late in the afternoon. The cloud formations were impressive, however there was a low band of solid cloud on the horizon behind the hills and this prevented the sunset from developing. This image reminds me of a photo of Bunker Bay I took in the 80’s. I was on holiday in WA while working in Holland. I took the photo to work when I got back late January – a pretty mean trick as it had been -15 for several weeks. My colleagues stared and stared at the photo and after about 5 minutes one of them said “But there is no one on the beach!” I hadn’t noticed because in those days there rarely was!
Yesterday started out fine but in the afternoon a line of dark cloud and rain came over. It was clearing by late afternoon, and it looked promising for a good sunset. Conditions were difficult, with squalls coming through.
This is the result.
The first shot was taken just before sunset and the second after.
Yesterday afternoon there were some reasonable clouds around mid afternoon, and it looked promising for a good sunset. The afternoon was a perfect autumn day, and the sun was lovely. However as the afternoon went on the sun slowly burnt off the clouds, and by 5:00pm there were only a few clouds left in the east. We went down to Meelup to catch them, and they continued to fade. There was some smoke around and the late afternoon sun produced a red glow with the help of the smoke. This is the result.
I went over to Yallingup Beach yesterday and captured this image of the sunset. There were quite a few people watching the sunset.
