Summer is golden in Australia. The beaches getting a real work out as locals and travellers all flock to the coast so that they can cool down.

And the only thing better than a summer’s day, is a summer evening. The setting sun paints the whole landscape a golden shade of yellow. While feature is the foreground become sharp silhouettes.

Boats, trees and piers are great silhouette focal points. You can also take interesting family portraits by placing the sun behind your subjects.
