Shark Bay, Western Australia
Phase One XF 150MP, 110mm Schneider, 1/2000 second @ f4, ISO 100

I am trying to be contemporary - meaning I'm writing this from Shark Bay. The sun is about to set, Tony Hewitt has run down to the water's edge at Monkey Mia to photograph the sky and I'm typing furiously. Maybe I'll take the iphone down to shoot a sunset after all. Please don't tell anyone I was thinking about it...

Our 8 photographers have arrived this afternoon and we're about to have evening drinks and introductions. The weather is warm with not a breath of wind, so we'll sit outside and enjoy the ambience - and talk about photography. And over the next three days we'll explore Shark Bay aerials both with our cameras and then with our imagination in post-production. Photography, I believe, is always a two-step process.

The photo above was taken this morning and the weather forecast for tomorrow (which is when you'll probably be reading this) is the same.

What a great place to spend some time taking photographs!

I really should try a little harder...
