Waratah Bay Sunrise.

In the last few days we managed to get a couple of nights away at the coast.  We stayed at Waratah Bay which is near Wilsons Prom, the most southern point of mainland Australia.  Today I was rewarded with an amazing sunrise.  I had checked the tide times and knew high tide would be about 2 hours before first light – perfect!  This image was taken about 15 minutes before actual sunrise….  🙂

Sci-Fi Seaweed!

On Friday we had a day trip to the coast (a 2 hour drive), the weather was so overcast and dark, but having driven so far I had to make the best of it.  High tide was just over and so lots of interesting seaweed had washed up.  Taken with the macro in what was very, very wet sand (the tripod sank by the millisecond!), I’ve never seen this type before. To compound issues, I had the macro lens on an old DSLR so the resolution isn’t that great.  Still, good to be out 🙂

Little and large..

I was brought up on the coast in South Wales, UK and I do miss the sea, so visiting Anglesea was both strangely familiar and yet different.  Now living in mountain ranges in the southern hemisphere meant I ended up taking a lot of images that day – there was so much to see (and I didn’t have a macro lens when I lived in the UK)!!  There will be more to come…
