Photographing Anse Source D’Argent

In part two of my Seychelles Video series I take you with me to Anse Source D’Argent, one of the most beautiful beaches in the World. Located in the west of La Digue it’s the ideal spot to watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean.

I went there several times for sunset to take full advantage of the different tides and also hoping to eventually catch a colorful sky. But the weather wasn’t favorable and I had to make the most of the present conditions, which meant to either photograph in late afternoon light or during blue hour. In between the thick clouds in the west would usually snuff out all color in the sky.

Anse Source D’Argent : Prints Available
Equipment: Canon EOS 5DSR | Canon 16-35mm f/4 IS | Kase 0.6 soft GND + Kase Polarizer
Exif: f/9,5 | 16mm | ISO 100 | 1/45s + 1/10s multiple exposures for focus stacking and exposure blending

But as you will see in the video, in the end I managed to come away with two very different photos, which in my opinion portrait this beach very well. The unique rocks are what Anse Source D’Argent really is about and I tried to find compositions that showcase their beautiful arrangement and shapes.

Like my last article, this vlog should again be a reminder that even without a spectacular sky it’s possible to come up with beautiful photos. It’s all about finding subjects and compositions that work in the light at hand and bringing all elements together in a harmonic photo.
