Shoalhaven Heads Beach – 25/08/2017

Shoalhaven Heads Beach
The Shoalhaven Heads Spotty Bench Mk.2 is one of the best places to see in the day. Who would you like to sit on the bench with and watch the sunrise?

Point Perpendicular Light

Point Perpendicular Light
This weekend it was International Lighthouse and Lightship weekend. This meant that decommissioned lighthouses around the world were fired up once more and the public were invited along to have a look inside. I headed over to the Point Perpendicular lighthouse and enjoyed the bracing 65kmh winds and 7ΒΊ temps to capture the lighthouse’s light. However my favourite shot of the night was this one taken shortly after sunset with Bowen Island and the Booderee National Park in the background on the other side of Jervis Bay. Cheers all πŸ™‚

Shoalhaven Heads Beach – 17/08/2017

Shoalhaven Heads Beach
Seven Mile Beach is definitely one of the more exposed beaches on the south coast of NSW. Walk to about the half-way point down the beach and you could be forgiven for thinking your were somewhere a lot more remote. This is how sunrise looked over the beach a couple of days ago, from the drone. Cheers all πŸ™‚

Pretty Beach – 16/08/2017

Pretty Beach
Blowing a gale this morning and therefore not the best time to be sticking a drone in the air unless I was attempting to fly it to New Zealand. However it was very calm last week when I nipped down to Pretty Beach. There’s a great campground here and amazing walks north and south along the coast. Great fishing too, so I’m told! Many thanks to Anne for this morning’s coffee – I had a lovely mocha from Milkwood Cafe in Berry. πŸ™‚

Shoalhaven Heads – 15/08/2017

Shoalhaven Heads
Awesome sunrise this morning in Shoalhaven Heads. I decided to take the drone for a fly and caught some great shots to the east and to the west. πŸ™‚

O’Hara Beach – Murramurang National Park – 14/08/2017

Island Beach
Always nice to get out into the national parks of this state and explore a bit of the countryside. Last week I revisited the Murramurang National Park for an Armchair Adventure (https://youtu.be/a_QYKyAOhfc if you haven’t seen it!) and explored the coast just to the south of the Pretty Beach campgrounds. There are three beaches south of Pretty all called O’Hara Island South – O’Hara Island South 1, 2 and 3 to be precise. This is Island Beach and O’Hara Island South 1 looking #unspoilt and pristine in the late winter sunshine. If you’re looking for a great walk I can highly recommend the coast path here – you can walk all the way to Pebbly Beach if you want, or just venture down a short way and turn around. Cheers all, on with the week πŸ™‚

Singing Stones Beach – 10/08/2017

Singing Stones Beach
Good morning everyone! Yesterday I headed out on a new Armchair Adventure, down the coast to just south of Ulladulla to the amazing Singing Stones Beach. This tiny little beach is located south of Pretty Beach in the Murramurang National Park and I got to enjoy the whole stretch of coastline south of Pretty Beach to myself! Singing stones gets its name due to the crystalline and fine-grained Rhyolite and Chert pebbles that were deposited here about 300 million years ago on glacier ice. The little bay serves as a natural amphitheatre, amplifying the sound of the rocks washed against each in the waves. The beach wasn’t in full voice (like previous times I’ve visited) thanks to a build-up of sand from recent storms, but it still sounded pretty awesome πŸ™‚

Shoalhaven Heads Beach – 07/08/2017

Shoalhaven Heads Beach
Good morning everyone. The forecast was for strong winds this morning and so I was bracing for a cold sunrise, but when I got to Seven Mile Beach it was completely calm. Still a bit chilly mind you, but not blowy. Anyway, this was how the sky looked five minutes before sunrise. Cheers team, on with the week πŸ™‚

Sailors Beach in Hyams Beach – 06/08/2017

Sailors Beach
Happy Sunday everyone. Awesome day here in the south coast. This winter has not been an arduous one in terms of the weather that’s for sure. Today it got up to 20ΒΊ with light winds which meant the montly Berry markets were well attended. Anyway, here’s shot from sunrise down on Sailors Beach in Hyams Beach village, looking north. Picture postcard ain’t it!

Sussex Inlet – 05/08/2017

Sussex Inlet
Here’s a view of Sussex Inlet that you might not have seen before. It was taken from the surf club side, looking north. The beach you can see curving away on the right is Bherweree Beach in Booderee and the lake beyond is St Georges Basin. If that sandy area at the mouth of the inlet looks tempting you can drive there down Elmoos Road from the Booderee entrance. πŸ™‚

Blackhead Gerroa – 01/08/2017

Black Head Reserve
I love the view when I point my drone’s camera straight down. Took this one over the rock shelf at Black Head in Gerroa – an amazing spot, but so many vantage points hidden until you put your camera up in the air!

Shoalhaven Heads Beach – 13/07/2017

Aha! What’s this? Another photograph in your FB feed from Andy Hutchinson? Why yes, it is! This is a shot I took yesterday morning down on Shoalhaven Heads Beach of the bench on the dunes. The more eagle-eyed amongst you may notice that the bench is slightly larger than it used to be – and you would be correct. That’s because this is a new bench (the old one having been burnt down), brought along by community-minded locals. What’s the saying? This is why we can’t have nice things? Hope they leave this one alone, it’s a great place to see in the day and you know, contemplate what you’re doing with your life! Haha.

Werri Beach – 11/07/17

Werri Beach
Another week is upon us and that can mean only one thing! Another week of awesome photographic opportunities. Judging by the clouds yesterday evening I thought there was a good chance for a vibrant sunset so I headed out early enough to get set up with the drone somewhere decent. I decided to head to Werri Beach in Gerringong and pitched camp at the north end near the lagoon. Sure enough, just before the sun set the colours appeared and it turned out to have a great splash of colour from horizon to horizon. This is how it looked viewed to the south over Gerringong with Mount Coolangatta in the distance. πŸ™‚

Shoalhaven Heads Beach – 07/07/17

Shoalhaven Heads Beach
Happy Friday everyone, the weekend has very nearly landed. I have been putting together the next episode of the Armchair Adventurer which I hope to share with everyone tomorrow. I went to a location that I don’t see mentioned online very often, so watch this space! In the mean time, here’s a sunrise from a few days ago. This is Shoalhaven Heads Beach on a lovely winter’s morning. πŸ™‚

Hey there gang, happy Tuesday to you all. Yesterday the missus and I headed down to Jervis Bay to catch the sunset. We called in at Orion Beach in Vincentia, where the trees overhang the sand. πŸ™‚

Shoalhaven Heads – 03/07/17

Shoalhaven Heads
You don’t need a $150,000 boat to go fishing. I mean that’d be nice, obviously, but a $500 kayak from BCF will get you out on the water. This guy put in as the sun was setting down at Hay Avenue in Jervis Bay.

Seven Mile Beach – 01/07/17

Seven Mile Beach
Alrighty folks, how’s everyone’s weekend working out so far? Winter has arrived here in New South Wales this week. This is an annual event that I have become used to, but when I first emigrated to Australia 11 years ago I must admit it took me by surprise – cold weather had no right to be bothering me any more. Here on the coast it doesn’t get as cold as the summers I knew growing up, and in all honesty, the daytime temperatures are similar to a regular summer’s day in the UK but I still wonder if I should have settled neared the equator than I did! Anyway, here’s a winter sunset down at Gerroa, with some surfers enjoying a little bit of swell in the late evening. Many thanks to Julia for this morning’s coffee! I had a very nice mocha from Milkwood bakery here in Berry. Cheers all πŸ™‚
