It’s a god awful small affair, to the girl with the mousey hair. And while she wasn’t in evidence on Seven Mile Beach last evening, I can report that there is indeed Life on Mars. With apologies to David Bowie. Yes, we had a bit of outback red dust in the sky, transported towards the coast on a weak southerly change. It reduced visibility greatly and gave everything a weird alien feeling like something on the camera of NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover.
This is my choice of keeper for this weird old dusty sunset. There was so much crap in the air that the sun took on the resemblance of Saturn.
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.
