Smoothed out

The high-rises of the West End reflect the glow of the western sky. The seawall at Kits Pool comes in handy for long exposures!

A fine Monday afternoon and – as was so often the case in my photo-a-day project – I wandered out for some fresh air and possibly scope out a photo-op or two. The tide was on its way out so I headed down onto the beach at the bottom of Balaclava Street and walked towards the city, watching the last light play on the mountain tops. By the time I reached Kits Pool, it was dark enough to try a few longer exposures and the high-rises in the city were reflecting the lovely yellow-orange glow of the sky; an urban alpenglow. I didn’t have my tripod so the seawall came in very handy. Two seconds was just long enough to smooth out the water and highlight the reflections of the buildings.
