Another sunrise expedition to the groynes at Balnarring Beach on Western Port Bay. This time we visited the straight groynes on the beach near the general store.
The image above was shot just before the sun broke through the clouds on the horizon. It’s a 2 second exposure, slightly smoothing the surface details in the water. This image is available to purchase as a print here.
Pictured above – A short exposure as the sun breaks through the clouds. I liked the way the reflected sun rays were glinting off the waves and the foreground sand. This image is available to buy as a print here.
Pictured above – As the sun rises higher in the sky, one of the groynes becomes beautifully side lit by the warming rays. This is a short exposure (1/20 sec f/18 iso100) shot with the camera way down low almost resting on the sand. This image is available to purchase as a print here.
Pictured above – Friend Jason preparing for his next shot as the sky lights up.

For those who might be interested in photographing the groyne, it’s easily accessible. Park at the end of Seawind Rd, Balnarring Beach. It’s a short walk down to the beach then turn right. There are also a few straight groynes off to the left.

Sunrise at Koonya beach in Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula.
This was certainly one of the more memorable excursions that my photo group has undertaken, …and in a bad way.
The rock selves at the end of Cape Schanck are hazardous at the best of times. On this particular visit two of our group members were caught off guard and knocked into water by an unexpectedly large wave.
Thankfully both guys are OK and came away from the experience with minor injuries. It could have been a lot worse.
