Frankston, Melbourne

When you think of photography locations in Melbourne probably the last place you would think about would be Frankston. The place has a certain reputation that is not what you would say as a “go to” destination. However this little jetty, part of the Olivers Hill boat ramp, is probably one of the nicer examples of a structure over water that I’ve ever seen. Was pretty glad to get a nice sky for a sunrise too, as the sun was actually rising from behind me.

Sunset at the Twelve Apostles

Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road, Victoria

The sun setting over the Twelve Apostles on the first day of 2014.

The amazing thing about this image was the weather preceding it. The day was overcast, windy, rainy, and generally horrible. After several hours of waiting out at the location I was certain sunset was going to be clouded out. I went back to my accommodation feeling disappointed that the effort I had put into getting to this location was potentially wasted. After a few minutes of resting I had the presence of mind to check out the window of my cabin just before sunset. The weather had blown over, and given rise to a beautiful red glowing light. I rushed back and was able to capture this scene. It was a good lesson in never giving up on a shoot!
