On the Rocks at Black Head Reserve

I liked the look of the clouds on the horizon and, as there was a strong north-easterly wind blowing, I decided to seek the shelter of the headland. I walked down onto the southern side of Black Head Reserve and shot across the Shoalhaven Bight to the setting sun over the escarpment. It was peaceful down there, not huge waves as the wind was from the north but enough to photograph some longer exposures. The bight’s local pod of dolphins made an appearance about 10 minutes after sunset and cruised northwards and a sea eagle cruised off to roost on the thermals.


Black Head Reserve is the spit of land that projects out into the ocean at the northern end of Seven Mile Beach. There’s a grassy area here where you can chill out or you can walk down onto the rock shelf to go fishing or, you know, take photographs.
