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.
Bunker Bay is a stunning location, and before the resort was built the beach was almost always deserted. In the 1980’s I was working in Holland, and came back to WA on holiday. I took some photos of Bunker Bay beach and on my return to Holland showed them to my workmates (that was evil – it was -15c at the time). They stared and stared and stared – I began to wonder what was wrong. Finally one of them said “but there’s no-one on the beach”! They could not believe that such a beautiful beach would be deserted.
These days it is a bit more occupied, but still just as beautiful.
