The Blue Hour – Bridgewater Bay, Blairgowrie

Pictured below, a pre-dawn long exposure shot from Bridgewater Bay in Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula.

Bridgewater Bay is accessible via a short walk from the carpark at the southern end of St Johns Wood Rd.   Beach access is via a set of stairs.  The best time to visit is at or near low tide when the rock platforms are exposed.  Navigating the beach at high tide is problematic.

Tech stuff – 30 secs @ f/11

Carpets of Green – Bay of Islands, Sorrento

October is a wonderful time on the back beaches of the Mornington Peninsula.  The rock platforms are transformed by a thriving carpet of lush greenery that’s only visible near low tide.  The photos below were taken at the Bay of Islands, Sorrento, but similar sights can be found all along the Mornington Peninsula back beaches at this time of year.

To get to the Bay of Islands park at the end of Diamond Bay Road.  The walking track to the observation point is short and well signposted.  Jump the fence and climb down the well worn path to reach the beach.  🙂
