So this is the first proper post-summer holiday week of the year. There are still some holidaymakers about, but most of the coastal villages of the south coast have returned to normal. So, when I pulled up at Gerroa, mine was the only car in the parking bays. For someone as deeply antisocial as me, that’s hugely satisfying. 😂 As always when I rock up at Seven Mile, I had high hopes for the sunset and while the early colour was great, it did unfortunately fizz. However I got a consolation prize in the form of a small electrical storm which passed over the top of Nowra to the south.

Moody skies and an orange glow as the sun descended towards the horizon.

 

I love the tones in this one.

 

These three dudes seemed to be having a ball in the small surf.

 

Late summer late evening beach traffic and a golden pathway.

 

Low down in the dunes.

 

Sun was doing a great job with the drama in the skies behind Moeyen Hill.

 

Hmmm – favourite shot of the day? Yes, I think so. Nice and simple and perfectly sums up what I love about this bit of coast.

Some sun sparkles.

 

Yep, that’s summer in the south coast 🙂

 

Out in the low tide getting the reflections.

 

Last shot of the day, about 20 minutes after sunset and the colour had gone, caught a couple of bolts of lightning from the storm to the south.
