Images of a Big Island

Gloucester Is.

Cape Gloucester is about an hour drive from where I live and a place I visit often, nice beaches, uncrowded and one of the rare places you can watch the sun set over the water while still being on the mainland.
Took a drive up there recently hoping to get a couple of shots of the sun skimming across the contours of Gloucester Is. which sits just off the Cape.
Thin cloud was passing across the sun when I arrived which made the light fairly patchy and low contrast so it was just a matter of timing to get the sun on the hills and the beach in the foreground.

The cloud looked like it might make for a nice sunset and I am glad I decided to hang around!

One of the best sunsets I have seen for a while!

    I really like the first image Tim, it’s just right ! I used to look out at Gloucester from my room every day when I lived up that way, and even ventured out to this actual spot a few times but never got any images I was happy with. – it’s a majestic looking island that doesn’t get any fanfare. thanks for sharing !

  3. Thanks Tony, you must have been living at Dingo Beach or Hydaway Bay I guess. I have also been here a few times but never got anything I was happy with either, very tide and sun angle dependant!
