Bay of Fires – Grants Point
Grants Point is another stunning photo location in Tasmania’s Bay of Fires region. I spent a night here recently and caught a sunset/dusk and sunrise/dawn that were (literally) night and day in terms of results.
The dusk shoot was under an utterly cloudless sky. This location faces east, so I wasn’t here to shoot the sunset itself, but was hopeful of some nice pink hues (caused by the earth’s own shadow as the sun sets, known as the “Belt of Venus“) and some long exposures. I got both 🙂
As the sun wasn’t part of the equation, exposure was quite easy, and the orange rocks really popped in the even light. The morning was to provide some very different results…
I awoke to complete cloud cover, not what I was expecting after such a clear dusk. However, I loved the results – a steely grey dawn, almost surreal in fact in the pre-dawn twilight. The long exposures were a treat 🙂
Awesome location and glad to be getting out and about a bit more regularly after a serious leg injury last year – expect more new shots more regularly this year!
