Around this time of Winter 6 years ago, I was down at the bayside beach suburb of St Kilda, (to the south of Melbourne city), and this day was the first, and only, afternoon in which I’ve ever seen the sea completely calm at low tide. The light was dull, but looking straight into the sun gave the illusion that it was dusk and the sun was setting. Occasionally the sky seemed slightly more mauve than golden.
The images below were made between 2.40pm and 4.20pm – both looking towards the sun……. and away from the sun.
(note: at this time of Winter in Melbourne, the sun goes down fairly early anyway, but 2.40pm………………such a strange and eerie afternoon).
