Locations - Dunsborough
The coastlines of the south west are spectacular - particularly around Dunsborough and Yallingup. Sugarloaf Rock (probably my favourite coastal location) is in this area and I made time recently to pay it another visit. While in the region I also did an evening shoot at the sheltered Shelley Cove.
Shelley Cove has nice rocky foregrounds, a small beach and shelter from the evening wind so it is an ideal location for an evening shoot. You might find yourself competing for space with fisherman though as it's a popular spot for rock fishing.
Unlike my last visit I didn't get such nice skies so I only had a short window of time to take advantage of some pastel colours and find some different compositions. The below image emphasizes the interesting foreground rather than Sugarloaf Rock itself.
Coastal locations often lend themselves to a vertical format shot as this allows you to include a lot of foreground in the frame. With the field of view provided by a 17mm lens you can include everything in front of your position - in fact you have to be careful not to include the tripod leg!
