Tiny, little moments

I arrived into Cairns yesterday relatively refreshed, thanks to my crazy body actually letting me will itself to sleep for about 8 hrs on my flight over. After a leisurely dinner with the small group of photographers who are here to photograph the Cairns Adventure Festival, we hit the beach at Palm Cove and enjoyed a relatively subtle sunset. Forgetting that we’re approaching the winter season down here, I didn’t factor in just how early sunset is compared to back home… or how late sunrise is (which we’ll be heading our to enjoy in about 45 minutes).

As for this photo, I took it handheld with my Sony A7 and Sony FE 55mm/1.8 lens. The articulating screen makes it ridiculously easy to get these low perspectives. Editing was done in Snapseed on my iPad Air.

    +William Patino soon, mate. Used the 24-70 for sunrise today and walked away more impressed than when I used it last time. Will share a photo soon.
