JUST BLUFFING Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia. I normally don't do sunsets, as a rule, preferring the brisk early morning shoots.  But I broke with tradition tonight and raced out to Barwon Heads to see if I could capture a good sunset.  I had already checked that the tide was almost out because I wanted to take a shot of the Bluff looking west towards the setting sun.  You can only get around the Bluff when the tide is low so I clambered over the black & jagged rocks until I got ...

JUST SUCH A REMINDER Point Lonsdale, Victoria, Australia. On a very cold winters day, it is nice to think about the warmer months and see the sun again.  Today's photo is just such a reminder, back when the sun was able to rise in a cloudless sky.  The warm rays of light slide across the surface of the ocean towards the beach, where sun seekers are soon to be found. Waves continuously lap at the white sand and the nearby cliffs are covered with low, weathered flora.  The long Point Lonsdale…

MORE'S THE PITY Eden, New South Wales, Australia. This lovely little bay is just outside of Eden, on New South Wales' south coast. This area of Australia is particulars beautiful, and it varies so much around every corner I visited. Within the beauty of this image are a few 'ugly spots'.  A rope that has washed up on the beach, alongside seaweed and even tree branches. It is almost impossible to visit a beach these days without finding evidence of the human race, more's the pity.

A FEW SHOTS FROM THE CANON Portarlington, Victoria, Australia. I was in Portarlington, visiting a client late one recent afternoon.  Climbing back into my car for the drive home, I thought a visit down to the waterfront might be worthwhile.  There is work being done on the pier with machinery in a fenced off section near the entrance, so the scene isn't all that photogenic.  I walked to the end of the pier, spotted several fishermen (not catching anything!) and walked back towards the ...

WINDLESS AIR Geelong, Victoria, Australia. A very dull photo today.  Fog over Corio Bay early in the morning is a little spooky, with the moored boats disappearing into the fog and beyond.  The Griffins Gully jetty can be clearly seen in the foreground, but the other side of the bay is completely missing.  Makes one wonder what it would have been like for the very early sailors who ventured from their home shores to the unknown worlds in tiny little ships, and then encountering fog.  No ...

PEACEFUL Port Albert, Victoria, Australia. A peaceful early morning image from Port Albert, on Victoria's east coast.  There wasn't much activity in the sleepy little fishing village as I strolled along the waterfront.  These fishing boats sit idle, either waiting to go to work, or having recently come back from an overnight trip. The bollards along the seawall were strung together by a solid chain and the water was almost perfectly flat,  allowing for a great reflection of the yellow sky.

EVERYTHING YOU NEEDED TO KNOW ABOUT RIPPLES Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia. 'Ripples are relatively small, elongated ridges that form on bed surfaces perpendicular to current flow. With continuous current flow in one direction, asymmetrical ripples form. Asymmetrical ripples contain a steeper slope downstream. With an alternation in current flow from one direction to the opposite symmetrical ripples form. Symmetrical ripples tend to have the same slope on both sides of the crest ...

TOTAL SOLITUDE Inverloch, Victoria, Australia. I'm a great fan of the early morning photo shoot.  There is something wonderful about the peace and quiet, the soft colourful light and the absence of other people that appeals to me.  The photoshoot at Inverloch overlooking the waterway and pier was such an experience, although there were two fishermen on the end of the pier that interfered with my need for total solitude.  The colours in the sky were so amazing that I almost didn't mind the…

OVERDONE AGAIN Anglesea, Victoria, Australia. This beautiful sunrise unfolded before me as I walked along the Anglesea beach, just a week or two ago.  The sky became 'over saturated' to the point where it looked like a madman had become heavy-handed with the image in Photoshop.  Every time I think my photos might be looking a little unnatural, I remember these mornings, where mother nature pushes the saturation slider to the right, a little further than normal, and gets away with it in ...

THIS ONE BEST SUMS IT UP Queenscliff, Victoria, Australia. I had a lovely morning today.  I took a short drive out to Queenscliff, at the end of the Bellarine Peninsula just before sunrise.  By the time I had taken my camera out, placed it on the tripod, checked the lens for dirty marks and walked the short distance to the beach, the sun was just beginning to rise.  The tide was a little higher than I would have liked but I walked around the head to where I could see the sun from the beach…

MORNING SKY Anglesea, Victoria, Australia. This large rock looked a little out of place on the Anglesea beach when I visited yesterday morning. It seems to be made of different material to the other rocks, and definitely different to the cliffs nearby.  It does however make a great prop for my image today and the beautiful colours in the morning sky show it off to perfection. I also love the ripples in the sand where the lapping waves have sculptured it. It still amazes me how puddles ...

THE STRANDED TINNY Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia. Near the mouth of the Barwon River the tides result in moored boats like this tinny being stranded on the bottom.  A tinny is an Australian term for a small fishing boat with an aluminium hull. The bottom of the river is also interesting, looking more like a luna landscape.  The sandworms have burrowed into the wet sand as the tide has receded.  I watched a man with a hand pump trying to capture these worms for fishing bait while I was…

YOU DECIDE Anglesea, Victoria, Australia. I've been sitting here for awhile, wondering what to say about this image.  I create a lot of beach scenes, as you know, particularly early in the morning, and I love it.  Each one is unique … not only the location, but the clouds, the sunrise and the tides all contribute towards making each a one of a kind picture.  So today, rather than give you a whole list of superlatives, I will let you decide what you think of the beach at Anglesea.

A SCENE OF SEAWEED Barwon Heads, Victoria, Australia. Seaweed as far as the eye could see.  That is what I found when I visited Barwon Heads for a recent photoshoot.  I personally prefer a white sandy beach, with reflections of the rising sun and clouds in the water, and the odd rock or two for interest.  But getting past the feeling that there is litter everywhere, the seaweed provides it's own interest in this scene and enables me to show something different in my daily image.
