Following are some images from an excursion to the wild coastline at Bushrangers Bay on the Mornington Peninsula.
I highly recommend the 3km hike from the carpark at Cape Schanck lighthouse to Bushrangers Bay. The scenic track follows the coastline along clifftops and through bush.
The best time to visit Bushrangers Bay is at low tide which allows access to the rugged rock formations.

Sailors Falls is a beautiful spot just a few kilometres south of Daylesford on the Ballan-Daylesford Rd.
We were lucky enough to catch the falls with a decent flow of water going over the edge.

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.

Below are some images from this weekend’s excursion to Fowlers beach in Blairgowrie.
If you’d like to visit Fowlers beach the closest carpark is at the end of St Johns Wood Rd in Blairgowrie. Follow the track from the carpark area to the beach then turn right and follow the path for about two hundred metres. Where the wire fence ends walk down towards the edge of the cliff and you’ll see a “goat track” down the steep embankment to the beach. I would describe this as a medium difficulty access point, …not everyone will be comfortable with negotiating the sandy steep descent down to the beach.
After the recent group excursion to Montforts beach I decided to revisit the place at high tide. The aim was to catch the three feature rock formations and also the “Bunny Rock” with a bit more water around their bases.
If you’re interested in visiting these fine rock formations park your car at the end of Spraypoint Road in Blairgowrie and take the short walk to the beach.
An image from Sorrento back beach on the Mornington Peninsula.
A 155 second exposure of the SS Speke shipwreck at Kitty Miller Bay on Phillip Island. The image was taken during daylight using ND400 and ND8 filters stacked together to give about 12 stops of darkness.
The image is available to purchase as a quality print at Redbubble.

Below is a series of long exposure images taken during a photography group excursion to the Bay of Islands at Sorrento. Conditions were ideal for those of us wanting to take long exposures.
It was great to see a few of the participants willing to get their feet wet to catch some good shots. 🙂
Following are a couple of long exposure images of the SS Speke shipwreck at Kitty Miller Bay on Phillip Island.
The first image was captured using an ND400 and two ND8 filters stacked together to achieve an exposure time of 195 seconds on a bright afternoon. Such a long exposure allows blurring of both the ocean waves and the moving clouds.

Following are images from Shack Bay and Eagles Nest taken during an excursion with members from my Facebook group ND400 Long Exposure Photography.
Shack Bay and Eagles Nest are part of the Bunurong Marine Park located between Cape Paterson and Inverloch. Access to the beach is via stairs from the cliff tops.
Pictured below, a series of candid images of ND400 Long Exposure Group members at Powlett River on the way back home from the excursion.
Cormorants and gulls resting at the base of huge sand dunes at the mouth of the Powlett River.
Following are some long exposure images from the picturesque beaches of the Bunurong Marine National Park.
The park is located between Cape Paterson and Inverloch. There’s easy access to the beaches via stairs from the cliff tops. Some might say that the access is only easy in one direction, ….the downward direction. 🙂
Pictured above – Eagles Nest as viewed from the rocky platforms to the west of the formation.

Following are some long exposure images from Bushrangers Bay on the Mornington Peninsula.
The bay is accessible via a scenic walking track that begins at the Cape Schanck lighthouse carpark. Allow about an hour each way for the walk and make sure you carry some drinking water. There’s also an alternate walking track that goes from Boneo Road to Bushrangers Bay. Both tracks are about the same length.

Images from the beautiful Pyramid Rock on the rugged south coast of Phillip Island, Australia.
You can reach the Pyramid Rock car park by driving to the southern end of Pyramid Rock Road which is located just west of the Grand Prix racing circuit.
It’s just a short walk along an elevated wooden path from the car park to the viewing platform. Yes,very civilized. 🙂
Some images from the beautiful and rugged ocean coastline at Flinders, Victoria, Australia. To find the entrance to Tea Tree Creek beach set up your GPS to locate the intersection of Keys Road and Boneo Road, Flinders. That will put you right near it.
