Australia is a distant and fascinating place for photography as the landscapes are quite unlike any place else. In Tasmania’s remote eastern coastline, lichen paints the granite rocks with orange hues.
However, once I got to the location, the entire area was covered in grey and gloomy clouds threatening to ruin the photographic opportunity. So when a gracious host offered me an evening cup of tea by his coastal home, I decided to take him up on his offer. However, much to my luck, the clouds started to part at precisely the same time as I started to sip my tea. Frantically, I had to excuse myself from my host and rush over to the beach to make this image. The dramatic light lasted just long enough to make this composition. Here, the pink hues of the sky seemed similar hues on the foreground.
