Early man catches the fish
This morning, the lot of us woke up nice 'n early and beelined it to Tallow Beach in Byron Bay, NSW to capture what turned out to be quite a beautiful sunrise. Plenty of clouds and some crashing waves added to the overall scene quite nicely. Initially, +Lauren Bath
and I had our focus on a lovely piece of driftwood that we (well, mostly Lauren) dragged down to the shore.
After spending about 15 minutes with it, I noticed this fisherman and his mate (who I masked out) make his way right out into the water, standing on some rocks that were jutting out. At first, I was bummed that I didn't have a longer lens (the longest one I have is +Nicole S. Young
's Canon 70-200mm f/4IS mounted on my +Sony
A7) but ultimately, it ended up working out nicely. I love how diminutive the fisherman looks in the frame, really adding gravitas to the enormity of the surrounding nature.
I edited this photo earlier today during some much needed free time from our excellent itinerary put together by +Topdeck Travel
. I did most of the editing in Nik Analog Efex Pro and finished it up in Lightroom.Purchase this print
