Bay of Fire

Possibly my personal favourite, a unique composition on such a famous landmark in Binalong Bay, Tasmania. The experience of being at this location at sunrise was surreal, and I hope that pulls through in the image.

I planned a trip to Tasmania in late 2017, the main reason was to visit the Bay of Fires in Binalong Bay. Being such a well photographed location I thought I had little hope capturing a unique composition, I was very happily wrong! I had scoped the location the night before, picked several compositions and predicted where the sun would break the horizon. I met a fellow landscape photographer from Germany (Andy) and we become friends. We decided that we would both meet for sunrise the next morning to capture the location. As agreed we met at the location and took our individual takes on the famous bay, as the sun started to create light on the rocks, the tone really came out. Although this light lasted all of 1 minute, I was able to capture this amazing photograph. One of my personal favourites!

The Bay of Fires, Binalong Bay, Tasmania is a landscape photographer dream especially if you are into fine art. I had always wanted to photograph the Bay of Fires, in all its glory and to witness the fiery colour of the rocks within the bay. From all of my research I could tell that the Bay of Fires is very well known to tourists and I could definitely see why. The Bay of Fires is situated near St Helens, its name refers to the Aboriginal fires seen along the coastline by Captain Tobias Furneaux when he sailed past in 1773.

Arriving at the Bay of Fires, I was completely surprised by amazing views no matter where I looked, whilst there I swam in the bay which was an amazing experience. I scouted the area for some unique points of interest, I found two areas for sunset and sunrise. I photographed the sunset the day prior to this sunrise shot and was impressed with the light. I met another landscape photographer (Andy) and we planned to meet again the next morning for sunrise.

I arrived 20 minutes prior to sunrise and setup my camera equipment as planned the day prior. As the sun started to rise, the amazing colours started to really come through in the rocks.

Bay of Fires is a must for visiting when in Tasmania, although beautiful in photograph witnessing the sunrise with no limitations on view is priceless. If you are not into early mornings, you can always purchase a capture in photograph to compliment your home.
