Light Painting Altona Beach

Light Painting Alton Beach 2023 © Ian Gofton

It was expected to be a cold and wet night for our light painting photo shoot at Altona Beach. Many of us rugged up with thermals, beanies, warm jackets and gumboots ready for the big wet chill, but it didn’t happen. Hardly a breath of wind, not a drop of rain and you could almost call it a balmy night. So instead of freezing we got quite toasty.

Matt Peart, Karl Zeller and myself donned our gumboots and ventured into the ever rising tide to undertake the light painting using a number of different tools. We placed poles at either end of the area we would use and placed a small dog light on each pole to easily define the area and serve as a marker for the painter. At times, one of us worked solo with the tools and at other times two of us worked together.

It was a fun night with lots of laughter and banter amongst the group.  Unfortunately, despite his hard work at the light painting, Matt ended up with cold, wet feet when his gumboots sprung a leak.
