I was randomly shooting the sunset when a family decided to walk back from the sea to the beach, I was just perfectly aligned with them and the golden hour sun. Captured the cute moment where the mother and father were holding hands. They noticed me afterwards and they asked if I had an instagram so they could see my work. We had a little chat and I showed the fresh photo directly on my camera screen, they were really happy with it ! I love the tones and how the backlight enhances group.
An unplanned trip to the Mornington Peninsula brought us to Gunnamatta Beach. This incredible surf beach is only a 1h30 drive away from Melbourne. I was still in the water when I saw the sun starting to come down and the sky transforming into bright orange and gold colours. I ran back to the car to grab my camera gear and capture the moment. #UnsplashExpedition
San Francisco always leaves me spellbound and curious. They say you should consider yourself lucky to live in a place like this from your dreams. I don’t think it is the one from my dreams because I never dreamt this grand. So enthralled by the beauty of a summer sunset at Seal Rocks. A perfect place to spend my weekend evenings.
I was on vacation in Barbados with my friends from university in may 2016. Barbados is right next door to the island Iâ€™m from (St. Vincent) and though Iâ€™ve always heard about itâ€™s beaches, I was in awe of the beauty in person. This was the first picture I took at this particular beach named â€œBrandonâ€™s Beachâ€� and is one of my favorite pictures of the whole trip because I couldnâ€™t believe paradise was just in my backyard.
