Winter Skies by DrewHopper Winter Skies by DrewHopper
Valla Beach - Mid North Coast, Australia NSW.

I was out shooting some panoramas of the local beaches for the real estate agent this afternoon (my new job by the way) when suddenly the conditions turned epic. Right on sunset a rainbow broke through the clouds over the ocean. This was just before the rainbow. Those shots yet to come :)

hey man, how do you prevent the retreating surf from moving your tripod legs, sucking the sand out from under them? That always happens to me when i try getting in close with the surf. thanks.

I push my tripod legs into the wet sand until it's locked in. It will reach a point where it will stay put.

Drew,
Wonderful capture and all the good ones do tend to be when your not looking! I also like the fact that the rock on the left appears to be a sculpted head. Look forward to seeing the shots that follow.
