Kurnell on Fire 2
Camera: Nikon D200. Lens: 24mm Prime (36mm corrected). Shot in April 2012, from the grassed picnic area at Silver Beach, Kurnell, next to the Botany Bay National Park. Looking to the Kurnell Oil Refinery pier, with Rockdale just peeping over the top of the pier structure. 2nd in a series of 4 images taken. Throughout the shoot, birds by the thousand flew along the pier road, & in this image, they've landed en masse on the pier railing. A walker with dogs gives context to a beautiful scene. Capturing the human element as a ghostly presence (as opposed to frozen in motion) helps convey the temporary nature of their presence in the image.
Image Size: 265 x 480mm.
