Balnarring Beach Groyne – revisited

For those unfamiliar with groynes, a groyne is a low wall or timber barrier built out into the sea from a beach to prevent erosion.

On a previous visit to photograph this groyne the tide was unexpectedly low and yielded images that weren’t quite what we were looking for.  This time I made sure to arrive at peak high tide and waited for the tide to recede and reveal just enough of the groyne to catch these images.

A local resident told me that the zig-zagging planks aren’t always visible and that they’re sometimes completely covered by sand with only the posts exposed.

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.

Tech stuff – 25 secs @ f/9 using a 10 stop solid + 4 stop soft ND grad + polarizer.

Bushrangers Bay – The Boiling Ocean

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.
