You could say that Im chasing the summer, from a sunny California to what should be a scorching Aussie summer I couldn’t be happier. Kennett River is located along the Great Ocean Road tucked away beneath a old rusty bridge which leads out to the big blue (Bass Strait). Trickling down from the mountains eventually making its was to the ocean, Kennett river is a great spot to go and paddle around in the shallows or, if your bold enough you can take on the surf. Be warned there is no patrolling surf life savers. The River is about 22 km out of Apollo Bay, but dont worry, the 20 minute drive is something to remember, the Great Ocean Road has views that will leave you speechless. These pictures were taking with a cannon T3i or in australian terms 600D, the sun was setting behind the mountains allowing for some clean and crisp shadows, enjoy and look forward to more soon.
Taken with the Canon T3i Rebel (Pinecrest, CA & China Camp, CA). I used the tripod and a long exposure to create the misty feel with the water. The Abalone hut was also shot with a tripod, it sharpens the picture minimizing camera shake. Sun Glare was the hardest to manipulate, it was really a matter of trial and error to get the end result you see. The one shot though that excites me is the silhouette. The outline that is created by the back lighting of the sunset is spot on. One lucky shot.
