As good as a married couple this pair was not going to separate…….joined by the rubber and locked by a knot, these two were taking it in. The Sun was setting on the town of Apollo Bay, a small, secluded part of Australia, where the sounds of the ocean come knocking on your door.

Its always hard trying to figure out how natural light works with your camera, especially when your time is limited. I shot the pictures at 1/25 of a second with an aperture of 22 at iso 400, it was a little over exposed but I didn’t mind the slight burn out, it helped when converting them to black and white. I have been up and down the Great Ocean Road several times before, the difference this time round is the ability to take pictures with my canon 600D, so stay in touch, more to come.

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.
