Rainbow Bay is an exquisite beach which is located between Snapper Rocks and Greenmount Beach on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

It is a slice of paradise. As it is forms a bay, it is predominantly calm. It is also favoured as a sunrise beach, whilst, only a few metres away, Greenmount Beach is distinctly a sunset beach, both of which are influenced by their positions to the sun.

During my photoshoots I constantly look at the light, in the clouds and the reflections and the play of light generally. With this in mind, I’m always on the lookout for varied compositions to make my shoot and images interesting.

The morning I captured this image, was perfect in every way. The sea conditions were perfect, great momentum with the waves, without it being too windy, thus, encouraging a smooth wave action.

Towards the end of my photoshoot, I reduced my tripod legs even further to maximise the reflections and to capture a vantage point and perspective regarding the waves and clouds. That is the bonus of wearing waders. I can position myself in the water without getting wet. The cloud formation represented a V for victory.

Thank you for appreciating my work!
