Queenscliff Pier

A long exposure image from the old Queenscliff pier on the Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria.

Sullivan Bay jetty – Sorrento

Following the destruction and subsequent rebuilding of this iconic jetty at Sullivan Bay, it took a few visits here for me to catch it in favourable light.

Sunset at Seaford Pier

Most photography enthusiasts will know this feeling.   It’s a gamble, … it’s half an hour before sunset, … and there’s half an hour travel involved.  The clouds may or maybe not behave.

Luckily on this occasion the gamble paid off with a beaut sunset at Seaford pier.  🙂

A Sunset at Olivers Hill – Frankston

Olivers Hiil, Sunset, Jim Worrall, Frankston

Last weekend we visited the new jetty at Olivers Hill in Frankston on the Mornington Peninsula.  As the sun dropped down towards the horizon the sky exploded in a way that we really didn’t expect.  It seems that predicting a colourful sunset in Melbourne is a bit like predicting the outcome of a coin toss.  🙂  These are short exposure shots using my phone camera as I left the “big boy”at home.

Olivers Hiil, Sunset, Jim Worrall, Frankston

In the image above, the glowing red “eyes” and silhouette of a small drone can be seen hovering near the top edge towards the left of frame.  The constant buzzing noise from these little buggers can ruin an otherwise tranquil atmosphere, …but hopefully the owner captured some great scenes from up there.  🙂

Sunset at Grantville jetty

Grantville is a small coastal town on the east coast of Western Port bay in Victoria, Australia.  The jetty at Grantville usually stands in relatively shallow water at high tide, and at low tide it stands proud on a bed of mud.  During a “king tide” the water can sometimes cover the walking platform at the end of the jetty as seen here.

Following are a couple of long exposure images taken at sunset during high tide.

Tech stuff for the image below – 157 sec f/18 ISO100 using an ND400 + ND8 filter.  This image is available to purchase as a print here at Redbubble and here at Zazzle.

If you’re hungry during your visit to Grantville then I highly recommend trying the homemade chunky beef pies at the Grantville Pantry.  It’s located directly across the highway from the jetty.   Real chunks of steak in a delicious gravy and housed in a beaut puff pastry casing. Great stuff!!   🙂  (…..and NO, I’m not sponsored by them!)  🙂

Pictured below – A selfie from the end of the Grantville jetty at low tide.  Mud as far as the eye can see.  🙂  This is a short exposure HDR image.

Tenby Point jetty remnants

Tenby Point is a coastal village sitting on the eastern side of Western Port Bay, about half way between Grantville and Corinella.  The jetty remnants are best visited near high tide when water surrounds the base of the posts. When the tide recedes here it goes WAY out leaving the posts sitting in an unattractive bed of mud.

Tech stuff for the image below – 260 secs at f/13,  ND400 + ND8 filters.

Seaford pier – Up before the dawn

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.
