Welcome Bay Sunset

in photofeed •  7 months ago


Looking towards Cape Grafton from Fitzroy Island, with the fading afterglow of sunset over Welcome Bay. The island was named by Captain James Cook in 1770 after the Prime Minister of England at the time. It subsequently became a harsh quarantine station in 1876 for Chinese people heading to the Palmer River goldfields with many not surviving their stay. Sitting within the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, the island and its fringing reef is now a popular spot for relaxation and snorkeling. Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia

The shot was taken with a Canon EOS 6D, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM at ISO 100, at 27.0 mm, f/6.3, and 25s exposure time.

What a beautiful shot. It's very calming.

First of all 👍 up from me! Thanks for your wonderful picture, and giving me an idea , what is else possible to see from our world.

I checked Fitzroy Island then, wooow! You can be glad to be there! :-) beautiful island with super cool beach 🏖.

We are in the moment at Costa Tropical 🌴 Andalusia ✌️ Also very lovely.


Nice. There a lots of beautiful places in this world !

Me encanta esa puesta de sol... me da paz

What a stunning photo, I find it incredible that one can capture perfection in one shot!

Esta foto realmente me cautivo. Es una puesta de sol que transmite serenidad, calma,alegría bienestar y optimismo para mi. Realmente admirar la naturaleza es una de las cosas que mas me apasiona en la vida desde muy pequeña. Ahora, como estudiante de la universidad tengo la dicha que en mi facultad hay muchas áreas verdes y soy feliz! Soy feliz porque creo que mediante la belleza que nos da el atardecer, el amanecer y hasta la brisa es Dios dándonos señales que todo estará bien, todo estará bajo control porque el está con nosotros. Otra de las señales que puedo sentir mediante mi observación de imágenes como estas y cuando estoy admirando la naturaleza es que es una promesa que a pesar de que hay momentos malos en la vida cotidiana , lo mas simple de las cosas te pueden hacer feliz y alegrar el día y tu vida.

You are talented! thank you for sharing this amazing photo!

The long exposure smooths out the waves.

Reminds me of summer in Finland


The sunset is a little shorter in the tropics ;-)
