Bridgewater Bay – Blairgowrie

A long exposure image from Bridgewater Bay, Blairgowrie, on the Mornington Peninsula.

This photo was taken in harsh daylight conditions, so I opted for a black and white conversion of this one as the prevailing daytime colours added nothing substantial to the image.

Tech stuff – 5 sec, f/13, ISO50, ND500 filter. The image is available to buy as a print here.

As an interesting aside to the image above, if you look carefully you can see two blurry figures on the cliff near top left of frame.
The local kids like to jump from this cliff into a rock pool below. Great fun for the brave ones! ūüôā

Here’s a zoomed-in view below.

To get to Bridgewater Bay, go to the carpark at the end of St Johns Wood Road, Blairgowrie and follow the sandy walking track south. The best time to visit is at low tide. At high tide all of the rock platforms are submerged and pretty much inaccessible.


Shelley beach and Point King – ND group excursion

Last weekend we had our ND group excursion for beginners. ¬†It was a great turnout with lots of enthusiastic people attending. ¬†We started shooting at Bridgewater Bay in Sorrento in very difficult conditions with the wind blowing a continuous mist of fine rain onto our lenses. ¬†I was both surprised and delighted that so many people stayed and had the patience to put up with these conditions, …..such a dedicated bunch. ¬†ūüôā ¬†Many thanks to Jason Cincotta and Michael Stringer for assisting with so many ND newcomers.

Later we moved onto the front beaches at Point King, Sorrento, followed by Shelley beach, Portsea , both providing us with much more friendly shooting conditions.
