Autumn has been quite warm this year with only a few days of rain that suggest winter is an approaching.
This picture was snapped on the evening before a sou’westerly cold front moved across the coast the next day. It was a mild and warm dusk and it was very still. People were out swimming, walking, fishing, playing at Petrel Cove, fishing and running even though it was dusk.
I was returning to the car park at Petrel Cove from a walk with Ari and Maleko just as the moon was rising over the southern ocean south of Rosetta Head, or the Bluff. I couldn’t resist taking handheld a snap.
I had been previously photographing a seaweed still-life further along the coast:
I had also been scoping for subjects that would be suitable for 5×4 black and white.
