The Wharf, the Boats and the Oyster Fetches
With some cool looking cloud overhead and enough time to drive further away than usual, Catherine and I headed down to Greenwell Point for sunset on Sunday evening. It was actually quite windy and I was a bit nervous about flying the Mavic 2 Pro, but it handled it fine and took all the required shots cleanly. The cloud kind of fizzled a bit, but it was still a memorable flight and I got another cool 180º pano to add to my collection.
Was aiming to get the golden setting sun’s rays reflected in the water for this one.
The 180 came out really well. Orient Point on the left, Greenwell Point in the middle and the Berry Canal on the right, with Mount Coolangatta in the far distance.
Tide was out which revealed the sand banks and oyster fetches in dark relief in the setting sun. In the background you can see the Crookhaven River.
Looking north-west along the Berry Canal. In the summertime this place is super-busy with motorboats beached all along those little beaches.
About 100m up, looking down on the wharf. Just behind the wharf you can see the most excellent Anchor Bay Motel (the red brick building) and to its left the Pelican Rocks fish and chip shop which was just voted the best in New South Wales.
Sun rapidly setting over Greenwell Point.
The sand bar here just below the camera is a favourite with the large local pelican population.
Couple of fishermen with a line in at the wharf.

Last shot before landing – the local village pool is now open for the warmer summer months.
