the remains of the day

Sydney September 2013

This is the view looking north, of sunset over Sydney’s eastern beaches region. Coogee beach is approximately in the middle of the image and Bondi beach is almost at the far right of the image.

Over at the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, the topic is the hue of you . So today’s hue is blue. Why? Because nothing beats the work blues like a bit of a break. *Yay*. But that means a break from my blog and WordPress as well. I’ll be around until the end of the week until I return in mid-November. One last post later this week though.

The Remains of the Day

  1. Nice image – sorry that you have to leave for a bit. I’ll miss your posts and our (nearly) daily dialog. Hope you will be doing something a bit fun…yeah, work gets in the way of life every time…

  2. This is interesting, the blue tone works really well with this ocean view, I like it very much! 🙂 I have a picture which I was hoping to use for a short story some time in the coming months, it’s of an ocean bay, taken in 1988, so old SLR camera, and it has an overwhelming blue tone to it, which I used to like in the 80’s, but recently I’ve been trying to tone it down a bit before I post it, in case it looked like I’d made it blue! But having seen how well this works, perhaps I’m just being too fussy – I usually am! 😉

    • Thanks. There are 2 ways to go – saturated deep colours or muted/faded colours. I guess it depends on how you wish to portray the scene – either would work for a seascape.

  3. You and I are lucky indeed to live along this stretch of Sydney coast. 🙂 I don’t often get farther south than Coogee, so this is a slightly different take on the view I’m used to. I can almost hear the soft surf at the foot of the rocks in this photo.

  5. The photo is simply beautiful and blue is one of my favourite colours. Australia is now on my bucket list. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to the last post before you take the break. Have a fantastic week!

  6. love the gradient of hues, so soft and delicate, very beautiful…

    it’s interesting how the photo popped out in Flickr, I didn’t notice it here before that (thank you, Flickr 🙂 )

    • Thank you. If you were standing there and turned right by about 90 degrees, you would get the view in my latest photo.

      I sometimes forget I have a flickr account. I see they are forcing us to have a yahoo address to continue using it now. At flickr, it is just about the standalone photo. No text and I don’t promote my site there. Here I tell the story.

      • I thought the two images might be shot from the same location, because of the shape of the rocks… even opened the two to compare, but wasn’t sure 🙂 thank you 🙂

        I love Flickr for so many reasons… I’ve made some wonderful friends there for the past 3 years… plus, it’s a photographic community, you get very interesting, valuable and constructive comments sometimes… it’s always nice to see your work from many different perspectives… and Flickr for me is an endless see of inspiration…

        but I hate the new looks of Flickr… and I’m strongly demotivated to upload there as often as in the past… especially now that Getty Images have ended their contract with Flickr…

        and I agree with you completely, here you can tell a story, it’s much different on Flickr…

        have a wonderful weekend, Draco 🙂
