An afternoon in Noosa

Over Easter I had the pleasure of enjoying the late afternoon beach ambience in Noosa as the sun was heading for the western horizon.  The balmy air was still, the light golden and the beach still crowded. The sea was warm and the gentle waves regular.   In Hastings Street the restaurants were preparing for dinner.  Then the setting sun sent a rich glow over the Noosa River.

I just had to get some images to remember these moments.

Night round

I went to Brisbane’s South Bank to check out the Brisbane Wheel at night, and these are some of the images I came away with. In two of them the rotating wheel is reflected in the new ABC Brisbane studios, still under construction.

All of the images required the use of a small aperture (mostly f25 or f29) and shutter speeds between 4 and 20 seconds.
