Sugarloaf Rocks!

October 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

It's Its been aaaaaages since I posted, mainly because I haven't been shooting much this year, but also because I'm lazy too.
 

I conquered my photography nemesis this week, Sugarloaf. It's a gigantic granite rock in the ocean at Cape Naturaliste. It's a photographer hotspot, almost as common as the Crawley boatshed. Everyone needs a decent Sugarloaf image in their files, and until now it has eluded me. I have visited a few times over the years, but I am usually met with either gale-force winds or a boring bright blue cloudless sky (or I just mess up the shoot with a crappy composition).
 

Anyway, I was enjoying a relaxing family holiday in Dunsborough, and late afternoon the clouds started to appear. Not just any cloud, but perfect "awesome sunset" promising clouds. Grabbed the camera and headed to Sugarloaf. No wind. No wind! I braved the giant mosquitoes (they bite right through your clothes), and scrambled around on the rocks for a while trying different compositions, and here are my favourite shots :-)
