|Here was the basic scene I was working with. I started shooting about 3pm, walking along the beach, and continuing once I reached the northern end, and walked up the winding ramp, to overlook the length of the beach. I knew that I needed the sun lower, so repaired to 'Speedos' for a Chardy and a bowl of hot chips. I came back to leaning on the railing about 4:45 pm, and after these first few shots, decided to squeeze the light out as much as possible, the result being 'Heading home" and a couple of others.|
This shot shows you the full scene, from the skyline of Bondi on the rise, to the shapes of the Bondi Pavilion, to the people mucking about on the water's edge. It also shows the salt rising from the beach as the evening wind picks up.
