Whenever I head out and the sky isn’t quite co-operating, I worry that I’m not going to be able to photograph enough of interest. But weirdly, the less there seems to be interest, the more photos I actually get. Case in point was last night – no real back-lighting of the clouds and an early exit from the sun, but there was still heaps of cool stuff to photograph. In particular the birds did me proud, swimming, flying and roosting around the estuary.
Shoalhaven Heads Beach is towards the southern end of Seven Mile Beach, just before the start of the old Shoalhaven River mouth. It’s a fairly wild bit of beach as they go, but you can capture some great shots by including the arc of the beach heading north and south.
