Big Empty Beach and a Big Wide Sky
I never can predict how busy Seven Mile is going to be. Last night for example it was a lovely evening, bit of wind, but nothing too outrageous. It wasn’t raining and it had been a warm day. There was even a bit of surf. And yet apart from a guy doing yoga who left not long after I got there, the only other people on the whole beach were a family about one kilometre to the south of me. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it when it works out like that and I get the whole place to myself, particularly when the sunset turns out the way it did last night, but still, it’s just strange. Anyway, on with the show …
Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa is my ‘go to’ beach as it’s a short drive from my house and offers a flexible number of landscapes in one small area. You can shoot on the beach, on the reserve by the boat ramp, over the rocks behind Crooked River or round the corner at Black Head.
