I live on an island that is 14km long and 500 metres at its widest point. There are no wide expanses of beach that face the Indian Ocean and quite often on a very high tide, waves pound the foreshore and wash over the road. After all, West Island is only 3 metres above sea level.
I’m always searching for somewhere a little different to capture the sunsets over the Indian Ocean. One of my favourite spots is the southern end of the runway. When the tides are half way, the reef substrate is exposed, giving contour and contrast to the waters. I love the feel of slow motion, the fairy floss effect captured using a slow shutter speed.
“Red Sky at Night” is just one of those images.
