Outback Aussie – Beautiful Sunset @ Darwin (达尔文的夕阳怎么能那么美!?)

As part of the award package for this year’s Singapore Blog Awards (Travelgraphy was titled the Best Photography Blog), a 9D8N trip to the “outback” of Australia has been something which keyed me up over the past few weeks.

In the upcoming posts, I’ll be sharing the most memorable highlights of the trip, starting with the oh-so-romantic sunset at Mindil Beach, Darwin.

自从荣幸获得2013年最佳摄影部落格之后,我心心念念的是澳洲北领地的9天8日游,多么让人心动的奖品啊!接下来的几篇博文,我将分享这次旅程的精彩亮点。

首先登场的达尔文的迷人日落。

The best spot to witness a spectacular sunset in Darwin is no other than the Mindil Beach.

Next to the tranquility of calming waters, is the famous dry season market named Mindil Beach Market, which opens from April – October each year. Here, you could get a taste of Darwin’s gastronomic delicacies, crafty artworks, and local entertainment, which I will give a more detailed account in my next post. So stay tuned :)

达尔文最美丽的日落观赏地点在名迪海滩。

海滩旁边有个富有民族风味的夜市,名叫名迪海滩日落市场,每年从4月-10月间对外营业。那里有风味美食、民族工艺品、以及本土式的音乐表演,不愧是当地人与游客最爱的景点之一。我会在下一篇博文中重点介绍一下,敬请期待。

Chasing the Golden Dream

Sunset starts at about 630pm here.

The splendid performance by Mother Nature waits for no one, I was tailing behind a group of excited kids who dashed towards the setting sun. Couldn’t afford to miss such a sensational sight, could we?

A press on the shutter, this precious animated moment was eternally captured, and I shall caption it as “Chasing the Golden Dream”.   :)

大自然的日落表演在6点半左右准时开演。

我尾随着一群追逐夕阳的孩子们。看着他们兴奋地奔向沙滩,我笑了,按下快门,捕捉了这雀跃的瞬间。

While I was busy capturing the mesmerizing sunset, a lovely couple came into sight. They were initially chilling and chatting by the beach and I was taking some candid shots behind. I then took up the courage to strike a conversation and ended myself up with two amazing and natural sunset models  :D

I later learnt the names of this spontaneous and fun-loving pair – Lynsey and Darren.

正当我忙着捕捉夕阳时,一对坐在沙滩上聊天的情侣映入眼帘。心血来潮地跑上前去跟他们打招呼,邀请他们做我的“夕阳模特儿”。这两个爱笑爱耍宝的年轻人很配合地答应了!

我们就这么闹哄哄地在沙滩上玩了起来。我在一旁构图与指挥动作,他们哈哈笑地尝试。时不时的笑场,时不时的 “再来一次!”,他们把我这个摄影师逗得很开心。

I enjoyed shooting these lovebirds thoroughly, for their words of love were generously expressed through every glance exchanged, every kiss shared, every teasing trick played and every smile given, exclusively to each other.

看着他们自然的互动,我很享受这个短暂的摄影游戏。两人眼里、心里满满的爱意在举手投足间不经意地流露出来。在爱情面前,连绚丽的夕阳也只能做配角吧。:)

On a side note, the Australians are truly amiable. Of all the Australians I met and befriended over the course of years, all of them are exceedingly friendly, jovial and genuine. And this impression just got reinforced over and over again, during my trip to the Northern Territory.

我所遇见与结识的澳洲人,无一不给我留下亲切友好的深刻印象。这次的北领地之旅也不例外。

A photo I took for Ai (Best Family Blog winner), just as the sun disappeared into the horizon

Solace and tranquility were the precious gifts Nature bestowed us, in its ever selfless manner.

We have had numerous intimate moments with Mother Nature during this unique trip.  It was a trip back to the basics, back to innocence. 

面观无尽大海,眺望夕阳逐渐消失的海平线,心中感慨万分。

我们原是大自然的孩子,这次的北领地之旅是个回归自然,重拾内心宁静的美妙旅程。
