Australian seascape and landscape photography

Number 16 and Pearse’s beach

Following the recent visit to Sorrento (Australia) ocean beach and it’s stunning rock formations and rock pools I decided to move further along the coast to Blairgowrie to see what’s there.

It was late in the day when I called in at two of Blairgowrie’s ocean beaches. The first one was called “Number 16”, yes I know a strange name and I’m sure there’s a fine story behind that name. The second beach, just down the road, was called Pearse’s beach, most likely because it’s located at the end of Pearse Road.


On arrival the tide was getting pretty high so the beaches offered only a limited opportunity for exploration of the more interesting rocky areas. I’ve made a mental note to myself to come back to Pearse’s beach when there’s a low tide. There appears to be some great photographic potential here.






Over the last couple of months I’ve been using a camera backpack called a Lowepro Slingshot 200AW which I bought late last year. I’ve been more than pleased with this bag and it seems the more I use it the more I appreciate its excellent design. Well done Lowepro !! (……and NO, I have no affiliation with the Lowepro company.) πŸ˜‰

    Not only do I like the misty water, but I love the details in the rocks too! I want to read out and touch them.
