The Great Ocean Road is on Melbourne’s doorstep with a lot of wonderful location along the way. Apollo Bay has some amazing beaches and was a definite on my stops, staying quite close by I had plenty of time to walk around and scope locations. I wanted to bring something unique to the view of Apollo Bay yet I struggled to find anything unique, until later of course!
I found a location and anticipated where the sun would set, the cloud where quite heavy and I didn’t hold much hope for an interest in the sky, shortly after it started to pour rain and I thought I was out of luck to return for the sunset shot I had hoped for. Although raining I started my drive just prior sunset, and waited in the car for a few moments. Luckily the rain stopped and I was able to venture out from the car onto the beach.
As I walked out onto the beach, I was slipping quite a bit! I setup my camera equipment and took my planned shot. As I looked to my right I noticed a green seaweed that was brought out by the flat golden hour light. I had to change my original composition and move to capture this unique colour in the seaweed. I managed to not slip over on the seaweed and rocks, set up my camera and capture this amazing landscape photograph of the green seaweed alongside the moody background. Something that I feel complements the shot quite well is the contract between foreground, mid ground and background.
The Great Ocean Road is filled with amazing scenery and nature throughout the year. I will continue to photograph along the Great Ocean Road and Apollo Bay in hope of more amazing landscapes and light. Those looking for a photograph of Apollo Bay for there lounge room, this sure would suit a green theme!
