These three photos of St Leonards beach were all taken within ten minutes of each other. I could see that Marine Court was reflecting in the wet sand as I walked under the Pier.Â It’s sometimes hard to choose the shot I think works best. Of course, normally I shot several photos of the same scene from various angles and one of them normally stands out over the others. With these it is harder to choose I think. Each has its own merits so this blog post is a chance to show all three.
On this evening there was rainbow colours present in the triangular shaped cloud just to the left of Marine Court. This iridescent effect is caused by either ice crystals or water droplets refracting the sun rays. I tried to capture the colours but the camera sensor just picked up whiteness. OurÂ eyes are so much superior to camera technology in what they can detect. On the other hand,Â sometimes the memory is worse.
