Photographing nature's splendour at Rocky Point during low tide

Travel Photography - Landscape

By Darren Stones

On Monday January 14, 2013, I travelled to Torquay on Victoria's Surf coast to specifically photograph Rocky Point during low tide at sunset. Fortunately, the sun was shining and this provided gorgeous lighting conditions for landscape photography.

I've never seen the tide so low at Rocky Point during my previous visits, so the opportunity to make new and unique photographs was most pleasurable.

I did plan this trip because I wanted to coincide the tide height and sunset conditions to give myself the best chance to photograph the beauty of this area.

Before making this series of photographs, I investigated another beach area to the west of Bells Beach earlier in the day for a future photographic shoot.

As you can see in these images, the sky was clear and devoid of clouds - sometimes not the ideal conditions for landscape photography, however perfect for including natural textures of the landscape.
