Seeing the Light

Part 4: The Twilight Zone


   
As the sun settled nearer and nearer to the western horizon, the intensity of its last golden light faded. Just before disappearing altogether, a last burst of orange light briefly found a gap in the clouds, tingeing the sky around. However, by now the dominant light source on the evocative antipodean coastal scene was not the sun’s direct rays, but the cool blue bounced illumination of twilight. 

The gannets huddled on the sea stack below, bedding down for a long night on their exposed sanctuary overlooking the Tasman Sea. I made my last pictures holding on to the remnants of the last sunlight, just managing to keep the exposures short enough in the rapidly dwindling light to still express the form of the turbulent waves battering the rocky shore.
