Southern Rendezvous

A six minute exposure taken at night, aperture f11, iso 100 on Blairgowrie beach.
The long exposure reveals the apparent path of objects around the south celestial pole and also transforms the motion of the rough ocean waves into a soft mist.

Thunder and halos at Blairgowrie ocean beach.

The return to Blairgowrie beach was everything I could hope for. I timed the visit to coincide with the low tide late in the afternoon, and as a bonus a thunderstorm happened to roll in off the ocean with a vengeance.

As I stood exposed on the beach to take this photo I was reminded of what a precarious situation this was. There were occasional bursts of lightning coming from the low dark clouds striking the water. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture a lightning strike with the camera but the view of the clouds was magnificent.

Thor’s fury

As the main part of the storm passed over head the rain poured down heavily and I managed to shelter my camera gear and most of my body by huddling against a large rock. As the rain began to ease gaps appeared in the clouds allowing scattered sunlight through creating wonderful light shows including halos and misty streaks.

Number 16 and Pearse’s beach

Following the recent visit to Sorrento (Australia) ocean beach and it’s stunning rock formations and rock pools I decided to move further along the coast to Blairgowrie to see what’s there.

It was late in the day when I called in at two of Blairgowrie’s ocean beaches. The first one was called “Number 16”, yes I know a strange name and I’m sure there’s a fine story behind that name. The second beach, just down the road, was called Pearse’s beach, most likely because it’s located at the end of Pearse Road.


On arrival the tide was getting pretty high so the beaches offered only a limited opportunity for exploration of the more interesting rocky areas. I’ve made a mental note to myself to come back to Pearse’s beach when there’s a low tide. There appears to be some great photographic potential here.






Over the last couple of months I’ve been using a camera backpack called a Lowepro Slingshot 200AW which I bought late last year. I’ve been more than pleased with this bag and it seems the more I use it the more I appreciate its excellent design. Well done Lowepro !! (……and NO, I have no affiliation with the Lowepro company.) 😉
