2 months ago I arrived on Australian soil. The plane landed early in the evening, around dusk, and by the time I was cleared through customs the sun had long past the horizon. After the warm welcome by my family, we drove through the night from Melbourne airport down to the peninsula. The sky was pitch black, the only illumination coming from the scarcely lit streets. After a little more than an hour we finally arrived. There was only one thing on my mind; ‘’sleep.’’
That morning I was greeted by one of the more beautiful vistas I’ve seen, right from their balcony. And that view has left an impression on me. Over the past weeks I have seen storms come in, breathtaking sunrises with mist rolling over the distant hills and the most fantastic eruption of colors during the sunset out west out over the bay. All while either; making breakfast, going for a walk down to the chemist, exercising out in the backyard or enjoying a wonderfully prepared dinner. My uncle is a pretty decent cook.
Therefore, it only seemed right to try and capture this vista in all of it’s glory during the peak moments of the day. Honestly I’ve been fortunate I was able to shoot each in succession over the course of 3 days. Bloody brilliant to be fair.
