Queenscliff Pier

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

Upon arrival we couldn’t have wished for better lighting conditions.  The harsh sunlight was briefly softened and diffused by a large cloud bank sweeping across the sky.  🙂

Sorrento to Queenscliff

The day started out well with brunch in Sorrento at the Buckley’s Chance restaurant with friends Christine and Caroline.
After being suitably fueled by brunch we strolled to the other end of town and boarded the Sorrento-Queenscliff Ferry for the short trip across the mouth of Port Phillip Bay to Queenscliff.
On arrival we departed the ferry to see what photographic treasures we could find along the beach.

Pictured below – Queenscliff Pier, shot in the early afternoon using an ND400 filter to extend the exposure time and soften the waves.

Pictured below – Evidence of Dredge, a pipeline from the offshore dredger snakes it way past heavy posts buried in the sand at the shoreline. The waves softened to a mist by the use of long exposure time.
