Pt Lonsdale at Low Tide

One of the things that has stayed with me is the idea that great photographs are made not taken. It comes from a quote from Ansel Adams, an American photographer and environmentalist. I had the idea for this photograph for some time before all the tides, sunset and weather all aligned at the right time. I sat in chest deep water dunking my camera in and out of the water about 100 times to “get the shot”. I was rewarded with on of my favourite images of an area I really love in Port Phillip heads marine park. When I show people I don’t tell them about the time effort and planning that went into the image. I just let them enjoy the image as it stands with the beauty of nature speaking for itself.
