Hill Inlet at Sunset. Introducing ‘Love of Light’

Written by: Brooke Miles



Time to read 1 min

Sunset is a truly spectacular time of the day, especially when you’re cruising at 800ft above sea level, camera in hand, ready to capture!

Aerials are special at every time of day, but at sunset I particularly love how the light hugs each nook and ridge, every rise in sand dune and tree leaf.

The light envelops each edge with a soft shadow and it is PURELY MAGICAL.  


Every day of the week we get a golden hour, and every day it gives a different colour and vibe. On this day the pinks came through in a soft magenta hue, still allowing the blues to pop, as Hill Inlet does so well. 

I envy the lucky humans taking in this the sunset at ground level from their sailboats. Tucked away in the safety of the inlet.  They might stay for a day or they might stay for a week, just soaking up the beauty of the Whitsundays. 

Immediately I switched up the lens to a telephoto 70-200mm, allowing for a tighter image that takes your eye into this section of the inlet. Well, that was the aim anyway!
