This shot presented itself after finishing photographing a Claremont property that will be auctioned shortly. After capturing the golden light / money shot for the exterior of the property to be displayed on Real Estate signage and real estate websites such as reiwa.com.au i started driving home and kept looking skyward towards an increasingly colourful sky.
Quickly making a detour down to Claremont jetty knowing this light wouldn't hold out for long i managed to get about 3 or 4 minutes of beautiful warm tones as the sun set over the indian ocean. To make my night complete a lone pelican was also content taking in the spectacular Perth sunset, or perhaps he was keeping an eye on the fishermen at the end of the jetty. Either way it was a nice addition to the photo's composition and made for a nice evening taking in the Swan River.
The RAW file was processed in photoshop with slight saturation adjustments and the Nik Software colour FX pro colour contrast filter to bring out some shadow contrast of the jetty while keeping soft tones in the clouds.
