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! 🙂

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.
