Alex Mustard - Coral Reef Sunset

Alex Mustard - Coral Reef Sunset

An Egyptian coral reef at sunset. This is a relatively simple image, but one that requires very precise conditions to shoot since it needs calm, windless conditions, a reef that grows right up to the surface and a decent sunset. I was actually running a photo workshop when I noted that the right conditions were developing and I knew a suitable location nearby to exploit them. So many of the group were able to produce similar shots.

My aim was to create a three layered image, so I lifted the camera higher out of the water, so that I could see the reef below the surface, the reef through the surface and the sunset.

Location: Red Sea, Egypt
