Following are some images from the beach at the end of St Pauls Rd, Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula.
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.
Below are a couple of images from Bridgewater Bay in Blairgowrie, on the Mornington Peninsula. This crepuscular ray sunset appeared for maybe a couple of minutes before disappearing behind thick cloud.

To visit Bridgewater Bay drive to the car park at the end of St Johns Wood Rd in Blairgowrie. It’s a short walk from the car park to the beach.

Being well elevated and surrounded by rough water, the rock is a haven for large sea birds. You can visit the rock and it’s popular surrounding bay by driving to the end of Ocean Beach Road in Sorrento.
The image is available as a quality print at my Zazzle and RedBubble sites.
Pictured below, a long exposure image from the Bay of Islands on the back beaches of Sorrento. Access to the Bay of Islands is via Diamond Bay Road, Sorrento. There’s a small car park at the of the road. On arrival at the car park take the walking track to Diamond Bay and branch left at the Bay of Islands sign. It’s an easy short walk to the viewing platform.
Access to the beach is discouraged by Parks Victoria due to erosion on the beach, hence a short climb down is required from the viewing platform if you want a view from sea level.

Following are some images from my recent long exposure Facebook group excursion to Rye back beach. It was a great turn out considering a pre-dawn meetup in the middle of winter isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. 🙂

This is a commemorative post marking the drowning of my Canon 60D at Portsea beach last month. An outgoing wave pulled the sand out from under one of the legs of my tripod causing the whole rig to topple into the surf. The poor 60D was only 12 months old and was a replacement for my 40D which drowned in similar circumstances in early 2012. The event also marks the death of my Sigma 10-20mm, a true workhorse who managed to survive the first drowning in 2012.

A couple of long exposure images from the surf beach at Kilcunda.
Images from a pre-dawn trip to Seaford pier with friends from the ND400 Long Exposure group on Facebook. We arrived in the pitch black of early morning, ….a VERY unusual time for me, ….and waited for the sun to rise.

November is a great time of year on the Mornington Peninsula back beaches. The warming water signals an explosion of bright green seaweed on the rocky plateaus all along the coast.
Following are a couple of shots of the beautiful rock pools available to explore at Sorrento back beach during low tide. In these images I’ve used an ND400 filter to smooth the background waves and a polarizing filter to remove the sky’s reflection from the surface of the pools.

Firstly just a quick note to let you know that I’ve updated the blog to give it a whole new look and most importantly it will now allow me to display larger images on the page. Screen sizes and resolutions have changed dramatically since I first started the blog several years ago. I’m sure you’ll agree that larger images is a step in the right direction.
The following images are from a morning trip down to Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula.
Now for some fun shots. The two images below were taken by my friend Stephen Pretty from Perfection Photography. He managed to catch a couple of golden moments in time where the waves got the better of me.
Sunset at Corinella. Taken near the French island ferry docking point.
It was a fine day with fluffy white clouds scooting along on the breeze. It didn’t take long for me to convince myself to go down along the coast and play with some dark ND filters.
