Sunset Session At The Beach!

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I keep telling myself that I don’t take enough Seascape shots so whilst I was in Balaia Golf Resort on the weekend taking (Real Estate Shots, I decided to head to Praia de São Rafael for the sunset.

I arrived well before sunset to also use the opportunity to take some product shots of my new Photography Bean Bags which will be launched later today!

Of course, after living here for over 2.5 years, even though the temperatures were mid 20s, it was a nice surprise to see people sunbathing and even swimming in the sea! Soon enough the sun started to lower in the sky and most of the sun-cravers started to leave the beach and replaced by sunset watchers. I set myself up near the iconic rock in the centre of the beach and waited. The result of the session was the following 4 photographs which are shown below in time order. All are available in print in the Shop, please see individual links below each image.

First, the sun just about to dip below the west cliff.

Just a few minutes later, the sun cast an amazing shadow across the beach as it almost disappeared.

Then a slight move of the camera and a wait for the sun to set, this was taken about 2 minutes after sunset.

I noticed that most people, as usual, had started to leave their vantage points on the cliff tops. Not me, I waited it out for the 2nd sunset moving closer to some of the smaller rocks for this long exposure shot with some stunning colours.

Waves At Dusk

I did contemplate waiting a little longer, but with now wet trousers from an unexpected wave I decided to call it a day. In the car heading back and we had a 3rd sunset with bright orange colours, although this was on the West coast, so probably not visible from my location.

Some photos from my phone.

Didn’t see that wave coming!
