CAPTURE DETAILS

Handheld, Sony A6000, 16mm, F11, 1/60th sec, ISO 100, no filter, processed in Lightroom.

Clifton Beach adjoins Palm Cove just north of Cairns in North Queensland. This palm tree always sat as an example of a perfectly healthy palm tree for me. The azure colours of this beach come and go depending on weather, particularly cyclones as it lies protected by the Great Barrier Reef. I wanted to show a pure perfect example of what the tropics looks like to me, without any human interference. No hammocks, deck chairs or people. Just the palms, the beach and the water. The result is Clifton Palms.

PHOTO TIP

The trick here is to choose if you want movement or no movement. Beaches can present constant winds and are rarely without a breeze, at least. Choosing a shutter speed that will freeze your scene can often appear to literally freeze time at that moment. As you can see from the capture details I chose 1/60th sec. Its often my go too. If you’re not comfortable with hand holding your camera and keeping it steady, go to a faster shutter to be safe. Freezing a small breaking wave on the shoreline, can also help to capture that exact moment, so watch the waves breaking and wait for a slight curl (if there is one). That moment when the wave was most active, and freeze it, along with the rest of the scene.
