Those following me on Instagram and other social media channels, probably know that I’ve recently spend 8 days in the Seychelles, an archipelagic island country in the Indian Ocean about 1500 km of the coast of mainland Africa. The country consists of 115 islands of which the central section is sometimes referred to as the granitic Seychelles as they are mainly composed of granite rocks.
These huge boulders of granite on the beaches are very photogenic, especially for more abstract aerial photography.
Located on the smaller island of La Digue, is one of the worlds nicest beaches; Anse Source d’Argent. often referred to as one of the nicest beaches in the world. Before the pandemic this place was often crowded with tourists but we fortunately had it pretty much for ourselves during our latest visit. Good for us. Not so good for the local tourism industry…
The first day I visited Anse Source d’Argent, was on a sunny late afternoon between high and low tide (falling tide). Perfect to get some aerials of the beaches, rocks and lush green palm trees. Sample image here.
When we revisited the next day, it was on a windy overcast afternoon one hour after high tide. One often disregards overcast days for photography, but in abstract aerial photography they are often the best as the diffused light is much softer and doesn’t cast any shadows. Beside one also doesn’t get the annoying reflection of the sun in the water when shooting straight down.
