For the Weekend Wandering post today we are going to look back at a post I did on St Paul’s Beach back in January 2016. I have been getting out a lot this last week, but I’ve been doing a lot of time-lapse photos while I have the equipment from Syrp. It has to go back this week, so I have been wanting to play with it as much as possible. There will be a post on it soon, but for now, let’s take another look back.
Weekend Wanderings: St Paul’s Beach
On Friday I spent a wonderful day with a friend and we went down to Sorrento to take some photos of the back beaches. It was probably a mistake going there as it is the busiest time of the year there for holidaymakers. We weren’t quite expecting it to be as busy as it was.
We went to a few different places, but I think the best photos I got were from the last place, St Paul’s Beach.
The rocks are a great colour. I had my Merrell shoes so I was in the water taking photos. The tide was still out quite a bit so the water wasn’t too deep.
Nikon 28-30mm Lens
Nikon have loaned me the 28-300mm lens and I’ve been playing with it. I do think that I like the length of this lens andI like how versatile it is. I used it for the whole day and didn’t once think about changing it. I could zoom right in or right out. Brilliant really.
We were there for the sunset.
This is the best sunset shot I got. It wasn’t great for that. Actually, as my usual luck would have it really. One day I will get an amazing sunset, one day.
Burning Steel Wool
There were some teenagers on the beach taking photos as well and when it was clear that there wouldn’t be a sunset they started playing around with steel wool. I asked them if I could take photos as well.
I’ve never photographed this before, so it was fun to do. I didn’t take a lot. I said goodbye and left them to it, but also thanked them for letting me take some photos.
It was a great day and we discovered a new area that will need exploring. I took over 800 photos, so many to play with. I will leave you with a gallery now from this area.
