Eagles Nest – Bass Coast

Eagles Nest is a popular rock formation and beach located on Victoria’s Bass Coast.  It’s about half way between Inverloch and Cape Paterson, and it’s well sign posted.

Pictured below, a couple of long exposure images from Eagles Nest on a bright afternoon with patchy cloud.  Conditions on the day were very photographically challenging as the sun was diffused by cloud one moment, then it would pop out with all it’s brutal harshness the next moment. This would happen several times during each long exposure causing many of my shots to be blown out.  Thankfully not all.  🙂

Technical stuff for both images – 150 sec f/18 iso50 using an ND500 and ND8 filter.

The Mists of Kilcunda

On an unseasonally warm winter’s day last weekend, I took advantage of the fine weather to reintroduce myself back to our fine ocean coastline.
Upon arrival at Kilcunda, located on Victoria’s Bass Coast, the sea was remarkably calm and there was a thick haunting mist in the air. A wonderful sight indeed. 🙂

Technical stuff – The image was taken mid afternoon using an ND400 filter to lengthen the exposure time and thus soften the appearance of the sea.
