Another view of Griffith Lighthouse at Port Fairy. Lovely and so modest in comparison to the larger lighthouses that dot Victoria's southern coastline.
An emerald green ocean curls around a sandstone rock at the edge of Bass Strait. The light was mediocre, but that is always a challenge. What can I do when the light is dull? This capture was carefully worked on post to turn a dull grey image into something with colour and life. But all the information was there...no colour was added, just drawn out of the raw file.
A bright dawn was a welcome sight at Port Fairy after five days of overcast and stormy weather.
The rocks of Cape Schanck are black, which creates an amazing contrast with the deep morning sky and the yellow seaweed matt that covers the ground..
The sea soaked sand of Norman Beach was like a mirror, catching the point at Tidal River as the sun rose golden into the blue sky. My family and I had been camping for several days, and I'd wandered off in the morning while they still slept to see the sun rise. What a treat.
And the same lighthouse in black and white when the weather was more inclement. The wind was strong and blew the clouds fast, but I still needed an ND filter to capture the motion.
The modest cliffs of Cape Schanck curl to the east. Above them sits the lighthouse, a forlorn figure too small, it would seem, to ward off shipping when the sea turns grave. But it has been doing so for over a hundred years, and probably will for the next hundred.
Old pylons near Melbourne's Princes Pier stand as a reminder of the sea cargo that once came through the old Port Melbourne.
I was lucky enough to catch the vibrant sky reflected in the water between exposed rock.
A traditional Balinese jukung near the beach at Candidasa provide the perfect foreground for the seascape behind. The islands in the distance are perfect for snorkelling, and the larger of the two includes a secluded temple only accessible during ceremonial days.
Townsville's primary pier, showing sails that remind me of the eighties.
A wild sea, steel-grey light and bright yellow pylons all combined to make this what it is. Anna and I were hoping for a beautiful sunset, but found something much better...
A long steel jetty marches out into a wild sea.
The early summer morning revealed the beautiful texture of these rocks immersed in water near Lorne's iconic pier. The exposure was extra long (about 270s) to mist the surface of the sea.
Look carefully and you'll see the eagle in the rock. These 'steps' are mostly hidden by the water, but emerge at low tide. The light was poor when I took this, so I worked the photo in Capture One to bring out the colour that I saw but that the RAW photo kept hidden.
