A couple of weeks ago we took the dogs for a walk along the foreshore of Warners Bay and down to Speers Point on Lake Macquarie. It was unusually warm for the time of year and there were quite a few people gathered in the park there enjoying the cool breeze off the Lake.
As the Sun set, it cast this beautiful golden colour over everything and was reflected off the water too.
I shot these using the spot meter on my Canon 90D and metered off the people. The light of the Sunset behind them blew out the exposure and the people became darker. A little adjustment in Lightroom saw them become silhouetted against that brilliant Sunset colour.
We had intended on getting some takeaway and sit down after our walk to enjoy the cool lakeside. However, as we started to get settled we were dive bombed by mozzies and the wind started to pick up across the Lake. We decided we would grab some Kebabs and head on home. By the time we reached the car about 100 metres away, the Sunset had been replaced by very angry clouds and the wind had picked up considerably. I had to hold the car door open as we put the dogs in because the wind was slamming it shut and just as Kim & I got into the car the rain came pelting down in heavy squalls driven by the wind. The storm front brought a cool change with it and the temperature dropped by about 10° C in a short space of time.
