PERFECT EXPERIENCE Anglesea, Victoria, Australia. The reflections of the sky and rock are what attracted me to this scene. Oh, and the wondeful orange and pink sky of the early morning sunrise, and not forgetting the lovely white sand. And, did I mention that there was not a living soul on the beach at this time of the day? Just about the most perfect experience in the world!
BLOWS MY SOCKS OFF Ellis Beach, Australia. Wow … every now & then I take a photo that blows my socks off. I don't mean to sound egotistical, after all the scene was there, I just took a photo of it. How good is the cloud formation, being lit up by the early morning sunrise. And the relentless waves creating wonderful frothy patterns on the sandy beach. This is the reason I get up early & love to walk along beaches & hope against hope that the camera adequately captures what I'm seeing.
DROOPY LIGHT Dromana, Australia. Piers feature in a lot of photographers' portfolios. There is something nice about the straight lines that seem to go most of the way to the horizon and add a slow shutter at dawn and the water turns to a smooth silky surface. I love the main light as it droops over to light the way for fishermen and boat owners who use this pier during the night. I hope you like it too?
LIKE WEATHERED WOOD Palm Cove, Queensland, Australia. I have walked along hundreds of beaches over the years, and they are all very unique. At the north end of the Palm Cove beach there are these rocky outcrops that contain a unique surface. It is almost like the ends of a weathered piece of wood, the layers have been worn away to produce a wonderful surface. Yet the next rocks along the beach are very rough and so different to the ones in the foreground.
