This is one of my favourite images. Made during the afterglow in the Port Campbell National Park, near the famous Twelve Apostles, along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia.

It was so exciting to witness the waves washing back and forward from the sea onto the cliffs and back again. The beautiful but fast-fading low light, under which I was working, required a long exposure to record the image onto the relatively low sensitivity ISO 100 film. Due to the low levels of illumination, which continued to decline during the exposure, and the narrow aperture at which I was shooting the actual exposure time was 8 minutes. I made the exposure, packed up my gear and cautiously made my way back to the car in the dark.

I’m really pleased that I’ve been able to convey the quality of the light, the warm/cool color contrast and the mysterious movement of the water.

The image was made with a Hasselblad X-Pan II camera and Hasselblad X-Pan 30mm f5.6 lens with Fuji Velvia 100 film. Image processing was conducted with Adobe Photoshop CS3.
