Montforts beach and the Bunny Rock

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.

  1. Love your stuff. It inspired me to buy a ND filter and I had my first play down at Spray Point beach yesterday. Hooked! Do you find you getvthecbest images with tides going in or out?

    • Hi Charlotte,
      Thanks for your kind comment. It doesn’t really matter whether the tide is going in or out from a photography perspective. If you’re walking out onto the rock shelves then it’s best to do so on a receding tide from a safety perspective. I find I get the best results on cloudy days with big waves. The clouds act as a diffuser to soften the light and reduce harsh shadows. Large waves are best for maximum “misting” and water movement shots. 🙂

    • Hi David,
      Thanks for taking the time to write. It’s very possible that we could meet up as I’m often down that way.
      If you have a Facebook account you can join my group called the “ND400 Long Exposure Photography” group.
      This is where I and others post notifications of excursions. The excursions are arranged as social events providing a chance to meet like minded people with an interest in photography. It’s a nice way to socialize and even learn from each other, and of course take photos. 🙂
