Peach coloured sands…

With a peach coloured sky bouncing vividly off some wet sand I couldn’t resist shooting this scene below. Whilst there wasn’t enough water on the flats to create a true reflection, it was more than enough to render the entire scene this spectacular palette. I found this particular spot with drainage patterns in the beach to add some leading lines to the composition.

  1. Beautiful colours Tony, it doesn’t matter about not having enough water for the reflections because the colours still look gorgeous.

  2. Holy crap Tony. This is my new favourite Tony Middleton shot. They are some seriously sweet colours.


  3. Just peachy Tony!

  4. Hey Tony, this is pretty sweet.. Great use of the center comp on the island, and the sand fan works great too!! Is this a single image cropped, or a merge of a few?

    Nice work either way.

    • hey Jeremy,
      This one was a 7 image stitch and I played around with various aspect ratio crops and eventually went with the 3:1 you see here.
      I love some of the new B&W work you have up from Banff and everyone should check it out 🙂


      • Thanks for the update, and the kind words. I am glad you like the cold cold images hehe. Knowing this is a 7 images stitch, I think I would definately need to see it HUGE sometime to really see all the detail that I am sure is in the print.

  5. Yep – you have some nice work there Jeremy, Can’t say that I overly love cold weather…but when it is as pretty as that it’s worthwhile. Yep heaps of detail in all my pano work (all are either 5DII stitches or 6×17 velvia images). In fact there are very few digi single frame/single frame crop images of mine.

    all the best,

  6. Nice shot Tony, I’ve been off line for a few days and you’ve been posting like crazy:o) Great work!

  7. Nicely done mate and great colours.
