Destin Sparks, a photographer who has earned a well-deserved reputation for capturing some of the best landscape photography throughout Australia, recently released a new limited edition titled "Passive." Although the print has only been available for a short time, it is already selling much faster than Sparks had anticipated. The new release, which was taken at Miami Beach on the Gold Coast of Australia, is swiftly catching the eyes of people worldwide. Buyers from the United States have been especially interested in purchasing the serene shot of the morning sun coming up over the sand and water.
Destin Sparks is the second landscape photographer to come out of Australia. Like Destin, Peter Lik specializes in landscape photography that highlights the vast beauty of the continent. With each passing year, Sparks is becoming more well-known for his work. The award-winning Australian artist travels all over, looking for the best places to photograph. Once he comes across a location that he feels will work well for a photo, he spends a lot of time watching how the light changes during the course of the day and deciding which time would be best to capture the inherent beauty of the Australian landscape.
Destin used this approach when he was standing along on the normally crowded Miami Beach of Gold Coast, Queensland, organizing his gear and getting ready to photograph what he hoped would be a memorable shot of the beautiful beach and lovely pastel sky. As he arranged his camera and readied his lens, Destin said he enjoyed listening to the soft creaking of the lifeguard tower as it swayed in the pre-dawn breeze.
