Perth Sunset

A few months ago, my Krisflyer points were expiring, so I decided to redeem a return ticket to the furthest place which my points will let me. This turned out to be Perth, Western Australia. I also asked a long time friend of mine, Clarence, who agreed to come along as well.

The trip itself came 3 months later. We arrived in the afternoon, checked in to the hotel and headed to King’s Park. Because it’s late autumn the sun sets earlier and this made it a good time to catch a sunset pic before heading to dinner with 2 of my friends who have emigrated to Perth.

In King’s Park, on the way to the lookout, I saw that this. My cameras are still in my backpack, so I took out the iPhone 4 and snapped a pic.

We eventually got to the lookout where we can get a nice view of the skyline and a part of the Swan River. At this time, there are nice pink streaks across the sky which made a nice backdrop for the Perth skyline.

A little while later, the “magic hour” came, the building lights came on and I made the evening shot of the skyline again. This is the best time to shoot night shots as the sky has not turned completely black, which gives a more interesting picture compared to one where the sky is completely black. Shooting at this time also prevents the some of the buildings from blending into the black sky.
