Shorebirds, Crabs and a Selfie on the Estuary

I checked the satellite image and the cloud-cover looked promising with a decent gap off to the west, so I headed out 30 minutes before sunset to photograph the estuary. After a fairly muted start where I was kept company by a shorebird, the sky came to life and I was rewarded with a vibrant and long-lasting display of golds, oranges and reds above the coast.

The estuary at Shoalhaven Heads is a great place to take in the sunset and spot some wildlife. The shallow waters here are usually closed to the ocean and not so deep that you can’t wade right out into them
