Ethereal Delight by DrewHopper Ethereal Delight by DrewHopper
Dark Point Little Gibber Beach - Myall Lakes National Park - New South Wales, Australia.

Magical conditions make for stunning photos, simple as that! This shot was one of the most rewarding images from my trip to the North Coast. An impalpable sunset from one of the most mind blowing locations I have visited so far in my photography career. The surreality of this landscape is simply amazing and very diverse. Don't let the rolling dunes fool you into thinking this is an outback desert scene. Myall Lakes National Park is massive! This park includes one of the state's largest coastal lake systems, as well as over 40 kilometres of beaches, giant sand dunes and areas of forest catchment. I cannot wait for my next visit and the chance to spend more time exploring the place.

Oversaturated but totally fantastic for sure. Would have liked a slightly more engaging foreground though.

Understatement is classier. Nothing wrong with a bit of saturation, but you know what my tastes are :)

Very strange lighting, it seems that the land is in an other dimension, with a different light than the sky.

Comp's kind of "meh," but the lighting is outstanding. Excellent exposure control, as well. Stunning, overall, as per usual.
