Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on the iconic Cable Beach. The beach is in Broome in far north-west Western Australia. Broome has a population of 15,000, growing to 50,000 in the peak tourist season. Broome is one of two major towns in The Kimberley. This is a very remote area of Australia. Broome was originally a pearling town but is now mainly a tourist destination due to its pristine environment.
Time
Sunset is the most beautiful time of day in The Kimberley. Nearly all sunsets are colourful. The beach in summer are nearly deserted - not many tourists.
Lighting
For photography, sunrise and sunset are the best time to photograph without a circular polarising filter. Broome, The Kimberley is very close to the equator, in far north-west Western Australia, so sunlight is very strong.
Equipment
Camera was my Canon EOS 600D with the kit lens 10-18mm 4.5-5.6 IS STM.
Inspiration
I was walking along Cable Beach taking photos of the sunset when I came across a family just coming out of the surf. The father had put the surfboard down on the sand and I was mesmerised by the contrast of colours between the surfboard and the sunset.
Editing
Just some basic cropping.
In my camera bag
Cleaning cloth and brush , when I know I am going to a sandy area I will also pack a hand blower has I prefer to use that to get any sand of the lens filter. spare filter, spare battery, spare memory card. I usually pack a landscape lens and my faithful 24-105mm. I find the 24-105mm so versatile.
Feedback
Enjoy your surroundings. So many photgraphers are so wrapped up in getting THE shot that they forget to enjoy.
