Two Tree Point, Bruny Island

Two Tree Point is an easy to find location near Adventure Bay on Tasmania’s Bruny Island. There is a large area to pull the car over and a long sandy beach heading towards Adventure Bay and a nice rocky point to explore – great for long exposure seascapes in low light! I visited at sunrise – quite a while ago now – and here are some of the shots. The sunrise itself was mostly smothered by the clouds, but there was still a nice mood to the shots in the low light.

The clouds smothered most of the sunrise this morning, but still allowed for some nice long exposure seascapes.

The lack of colour at sunrise is always a little disappointing, but there is still a lot to be said for some moody skies and crashing waves over a rocky foreshore. The texture of the grey clouds really fills the sky and is a very acceptable alternative to a fiery dawn sky 🙂

Finally a little bit of colour broke through but by now I was into the dark and brooding theme of the morning, which is perhaps showing through on my post processing here! Lots of dodging and burning, and added contrast.

I really need to make another trip to Bruny Island sometime – fair to say, there is still plenty of “unfinished business” to take care of there…
