Balnarring Beach Groyne Sunrise

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.

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 Number 16 beach – The Dragon’s Head

Here’s some images from a recent sunrise excursion to Number 16 beach at Rye on the Mornington Peninsula. The beach car park is located at the intersection of Tasman Drive and Marcia Ave in Rye.  The best time to visit is near low tide when the rock platforms are exposed and the Dragon’s Head becomes accessible.   Prepare to get your feet wet.  🙂

Technical stuff – 20 secs f/20 using an ND400 filter.

A morning at The Pinnacles, Phillip Island.

After a long pre-dawn walk along tracks through the tops of the coastal cliffs I arrived at The Pinnacles in time to see the sunrise. Access to the Pinnacles beach area here is via a steep (slippery when wet) track running down the face of the cliff area.

Unfortunately it turned out to be a dud sunrise so there wasn’t much colour in the sky but after getting down to the beach the view of the rock formations was wonderful. An interesting feature of this beach is the large round rocks covering the ground, great for photos but a challenge to navigate at times.

Signs of the season.

Once again winter is nearly here in Melbourne. Thick morning mists form in low lying paddocks and create spectacular and brief pastel light shows.

Title – Velvet Morning.
