Set sights on prize

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

PERTH'S coast dishes up some of the best sun­set photography op­por­tu­ni­ties over sum­mer – and we want you to share your best snaps to be in the run­ning for a great prize.

In the lead-up to Sun­set Wine, Scar­bor­ough's bou­tique wine fes­ti­val held on Fe­bru­ary 18 and 19, the hunt is on for Perth's best sum­mer sun­set photo.

Our photographer An­drew Ritchie is ex­tremely proud of this award-win­ner he took at a past Sculp­tures By The Sea exhibition.

We've barred Ritchie (and other staff at the pa­per) from entering our read­ers-only Sun­set Wine competition, but as a competition judge he has of­fered ad­vice on how to cap­ture a per­fect sun­set im­age us­ing a cam­era or smart­phone.

“The fore­ground can be just as im­por­tant as the back­ground, so adding a sil­hou­ette of some­thing like a cham­pagne glass lifts and gives the im­age depth,” he said.

“Don't be afraid to try dif­fer­ent an­gles by ly­ing down or from up high – you should not just al­ways shoot from the hip.”

Snap a good one and you could win a Sun­set Wine event ex­pe­ri­ence.

The prize in­cludes a voucher for overnight ac­com­mo­da­tion at Ren­dezvous Scar­bor­ough and two tick­ets to en­joy the event, which this year is at Brighton Re­serve while Scar­bor­ough's main beach­front un­der­goes a makeover.

Sun­set Wine will fea­ture winer­ies, brew­ers, dis­tillers, gourmet food and live en­ter­tain­ment. Event di­rec­tor Richard Campbell said the new venue would still en­able vis­i­tors to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the ocean.

“There is a great range of lo­cal wines on of­fer to taste, then en­joy with a glass at the event or take home some bot­tles to share later,” he said.

“Along with gourmet food, live mu­sic and good friends, it's the recipe for one of sum­mer's best bou­tique events.”
