For perfect winter walks – Flickr pic of the day

Golden Camps Bay

This photograph of golden Camps Bay winter sunset was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Paul Bruins aka Panorama Paul.

Paul says, “It was an unusually warm winter’s afternoon when I captured these rocks and cloudy sunset at a small cove near Camps Bay beach, perfect weather conditions for photography. I discovered this composition just as the sun was about to set below the horizon. The light was still quite bright though, so I decided to hide the sun behind that large rock in an attempt to control the huge difference in exposure between the bright sky and the dark shadows. I took a dozen or so photographs from this angle, hoping that I’d get at least one where everything looked good. It was only when I returned home and reviewed my images on my computer that I noticed how perfectly I’d managed to capture that wave breaking over the big rock in the centrr-foreground. Skill or serendipity? Definitely the latter!”
