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™‚

Orion Beach – 04/07/17

Orion Beach
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™‚

Gerroa – 29/06/17

Gerroa
I was out walking yesterday and spied a good sized gap in the cloud off to the west. Figuring that probably meant a good sunset I was down at Gerroa in good time and, sure enough, the sky lit up. πŸ™‚

Broughton Creek – 25/06/17

Broughton Creek
We had a sneaky little sunrise at the end of the week and, not wanting to stray too far from my local coffee shop, I headed to nearby Broughton Creek. The morning mist added a peaceful atmosphere to the scene as the rising sun backlit the clouds. And in other news, a reminder that my winter sale is now on at (http://shop.andyhutchinson.com.au) with 10% off on all orders over $50 with the coupon code ‘winteriscoming’. And if you didn’t see yesterday’s post, my new Armchair Adventure is now up on YouTube and can be found here – https://youtu.be/ZCqFd8aQ7QA . Thanks all πŸ™‚

Morton National Park – 23/06/17

Morton National Park
Ahoi ahoi team. Looky here, it’s Friday already! Yesterday I headed up to the Southern Highlands to film my latest episode of the Armchair Adventurer. My favourite shot of the day was taken on the drive out of the Morton National Park, looking down the bush track as the sun lit up the road. Cheers all πŸ™‚

Gosangs Tunnel – 21/06/17

Gosangs Tunnel
Gosangs Tunnel is an elevated sea cave that runs straight through the middle of the cliffs on the Beecroft Peninsula near Currarong. You need to get down on your hands and knees to get through to the other side, but it’s well worth a little bit of discomfort for the amazing landscape on the other side. This is how it looks when you get out the other side of the cave. I can’t promise you’ll get a photogenic shower offshore but it’s a great place to spot whales as the continental shelf drops away fairly steeply here. If you’d like to visit this location for yourself, I did an Armchair Adventure guide which you can find here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-9iZBlu6Lw . Cheers team πŸ™‚

Narrawallee Beach – 20/06/17

Narrwallee Beach
The shortest day of the year is nearly upon us and from tomorrow the days will start getting longer again as we cruise through winter and towards the spring. Here’s a shot that exudes Australian summer right through the screen. This is Narrawallee Beach, which you can find just to the north of Mollymook Beach and around the corner from Bannisters Head. Awesome spot, awesome beach, awesome summer to come!

Greenfield Beach – 15/06/17

Greenfields Beach
Happy Thursday team. I hope your week is proceeding as per acceptable parameters. This morning I headed down to Jervis Bay to record the new episode of the Armchair Adventurer. The weather was stunning and once the sun came up and it warmed up, you wouldn’t know it was mid-winter. I had pretty much the whole place to myself too and got some cool shots south of Vincentia. This is Greenfields Beach from the drone looking, it must be said, very lovely. Cheers all πŸ™‚

Glasshouse Rocks South – 14/06/17

Glasshouse Rocks South
Aha! We have made it to Wednesday with our sanity intact. Just. There are 10,650 beaches in Australia and, at a guess, I’d say I had visited about 500 of them. I will of course work on the rest of the list! This particular stretch of sand is Glasshouse Rocks South in Narooma. You can only get to this beach on foot as the land above is part of a private $7.5m estate owned by the pub baron Justin Hemmes. Mr Hemmes clearly has very good taste – can you imagine having this view every morning at your breakfast bar? If you’re reading this Justin (as if!) I’m always available for house-sitting πŸ™‚

Shoalhaven Heads – 13/06/17

Shoalhaven Heads
Another long weekend has been and gone. Hello to any of you who might have travelled down to the Shoalhaven for the Winter Wine Festival. I was doing some social media work for @Silos.Estate and it certainly seemed busy to me! Also there was a huge queue at the Berry Donut van, but then there often is. Anyway, here’s today’s shot, taken a few weeks ago on Shoalhaven Heads Beach. Cheers all πŸ™‚

Mermaids Inlet – 07/06/17

Mermaids Inlet
Jervis Bay is an amazing place and I love discovering the history of the area, both human and geological. For instance, this is Mermaids Inlet on the northern Beecroft side of the bay. Those massive rocks that you can see lying on their edges are the size of a bus and they were put there not through the action of erosion, but because of massive tsunamis that hit this coastline as recently as 12,000 years ago. The rocks didn’t fall from the cliffs but were washed out, rotated and then dropped again as the waters of the massive waves abated. Picture for a moment how big a wave would have to be to move a 6m boulder up a 32m high cliff face! Much of Jervis Bay appears to owe its appearance to these tsunamis. The local aboriginal community, who were living here before the end of the last ice age and the rising waters that created the bay itself were undoubtedly present for some of these catastrophic events which is an incredible thing to consider. You’ll see a lot more of this bit of coastline in my next Armchair Adventure which I’m currently editing and will upload this week. πŸ™‚

Gosangs Tunnel – 05/06/17

Gosangs Tunnel
Hey gang. Hopefully you had an enjoyable weekend – happy Monday to you all. On Sunday I got up early and headed down to Currarong to shoot the latest episode of the Armchair Adventurer. I walked to the northern end of the Beecroft Peninsula and to Gosangs Tunnel and the Mermaid Inlet. This is how the view looks from 50m up looking south over the peninsula. If you look closely you will also see me! Pretty dramatic scenery, no? πŸ™‚

Broughton Creek – 02/06/17

Broughton Creek
The sun doesn’t often line up with this section of Broughton Creek, so it’s a fairly tricky spot to get a decent sunset shot on. Sometimes the cloud is helpful though and there’s no wind to affect the reflections πŸ™‚

Shoalhaven River – 01/06/17

Shoalhaven Heads
Well blimey, it’s Thursday already. How did that happen? Anyone else sit down on a Monday morning and then glance up at the clock in the menubar a short time later and find it’s the end of the week? Anyway, the temperatures have dropped off a fair bit here in south coast NSW, although I can’t help thinking that calling it winter is stretching it a bit. Sure it gets a bit chilly at night, but the daytime temperatures are bank holiday Speedos-and-a-grin beach weather where I come from – lol. Right, today’s shot was taken a couple of weeks ago in Shoalhaven Heads, looking west out over the oyster fetches at sunset. This photo like all my other daily shots can be purchased at very reasonable prices in my online store (shop.andyhutchinson.com.au) in traditional and canvas formats. So if you want a bit of south coast serenity in your home, you know what to do. Also, if you haven’t had a squizz already, please check out my new YouTube channel called The Armchair Adventurer (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAXQpcHlYOvhhF4j8RK7s1A) and subscribe to be notified when I upload a new vlog. Planning something pretty cool for the next one, so please stay tuned πŸ™‚
