Pic of the Week_Afterglow_Oberon Bay_Wilsons Promontory National Park

Photo of Afterglow_Oberon Bay_Wilsons Promontory National Park Canon 20D camera and Canon 20-35mm 2.8 lens @ 20mm. 1/100 second @ f5.6 ISO 100

Here’s a nice secluded spot: Oberon Bay on Wilsons Promontory National Park. Photographers can only access this beach by hiking along a relatively easy, extremely well marked track for 3 hours from the Telegraph Saddle car park. Alternatively you could undertake the moderately difficult 2 1/2 hour coastal hike from Tidal River.

Once there you’ll be well rewarded with great views along this lovely beach. But be aware the prom is known for wet and, at times, windy weather. The evening I made this photo was extremely windy. I was constantly pushed backwards by the incoming tide, propelled onto the beach by the near ferocious winds.

I’d moved back almost to the dunes to make the above image. This allowed me to introduce the shapes of the foreground creek together with that of the distant hillside and islands to the fantastic sculptured cloud formations above.

Image processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 3 and Adobe Photoshop CS5.
