Palette of Power
On Saturday I was fooled my the weather forecast (97% cloud cover) and missed a beautiful sunrise. So on Sunday I rushed away like a whirlwind despite of the rain and vague perspective. I went to one of my fav spots – cliffs and rocks near Clovelly Beach. I’ve been there a hundred of times but I knew this place still had potential, which could be revealed during small or surf and not too high tide. Because otherwise on high tide or with big waves I couldn’t reach some distant rocks – it would just wash me away.
So I went there and decided to explore. Forecast was showing 40-50% or rain all the time, which was good – it meant some dramatic clouds with some amount of luck.
I’ve set my old camera to do timelapse on the rocks and ventured forth with my main camera.
Tried a few compositions here and there and then it all began. I didn’t know which way to shoot. Drama in the sky over Coogee and Maroubra, waves and rising sun over the ocean, golden light painted cliffs from behind…
I did many shots and few panoramas.
I’m so thankful for the weather. Heavy rain started only 30 min after the sunrise. This is when I had to flee.
