The Royal Adelaide Show
Now that the 52 Weeks Flickr challenge is over, I am on the look-out for another challenge that will keep me creating images. Someone pointed me in the direction of the Weekly Photo Challenge at WordPress’ Daily Post. Last week’s was ‘Horizon’, and I am weighing in a little late (as often happens), with some images of the beautiful Port Willunga jetty ruins.
Port Willunga used to be a grain port, but is now a popular tourist spot. The old jetty was destroyed in a storm in 1915 (I think). I love the way the jetty pylons form a contrast against the sea and sky, breaking up the horizon.
We get some awesome sunsets in South Australia:
A recent visit to Kuitpo Forest Reserve near Adelaide, South Australia. Not my best focusing, but I like the feel of these images, and the landscape reminds me vaguely of a Hans Heysen painting. Taken with a Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX Aspherical DF lens.
Brighton Jetty, just after sunset on a cloudy evening. Went hoping to try out my new Cokin ND Grad Light filter, but the sky and sea looked almost the same. Took this shot instead, without the filter, with a tripod, and with the self-timer on to eliminate camera shake.
