Grantville is a small coastal town on the east coast of Western Port bay in Victoria, Australia. The jetty at Grantville usually stands in relatively shallow water at high tide, and at low tide it stands proud on a bed of mud. During a “king tide” the water can sometimes cover the walking platform at the end of the jetty as seen here.
Following are a couple of long exposure images taken at sunset during high tide.
Tech stuff for the image below – 157 sec f/18 ISO100 using an ND400 + ND8 filter. This image is available to purchase as a print here.

If you’re hungry during your visit to Grantville then I highly recommend trying the homemade chunky beef pies at the Grantville Pantry. It’s located directly across the highway from the jetty. Real chunks of steak in a delicious gravy and housed in a beaut puff pastry casing. Great stuff!! 🙂 (…..and NO, I’m not sponsored by them!) 🙂

Eagles Nest is a popular rock formation and beach located on Victoria’s Bass Coast. It’s about half way between Inverloch and Cape Paterson, and it’s well sign posted.
Pictured below, a couple of long exposure images from Eagles Nest on a bright afternoon with patchy cloud. Conditions on the day were very photographically challenging as the sun was diffused by cloud one moment, then it would pop out with all it’s brutal harshness the next moment. This would happen several times during each long exposure causing many of my shots to be blown out. Thankfully not all. 🙂
Technical stuff for both images – 150 sec f/18 iso50 using an ND500 and ND8 filter.
