I have a really cool feature on my watch and iPhone that sends me a message every single day to tell me that there’s one hour until sunset. It of course adjusts to the correct time and it means that if I haven’t specifically planned to be somewhere, I have a good half an hour to get in my car and get somewhere scenic to photograph the last light of the day. Tonight I missed my message somehow and only realised that the sunset was coming with 30 minutes to go. So I had enough time (just!) to get to Shoalhaven Heads and even then, not far from the car park. Fortunately I live somewhere awesome and beauty is never far away. So anyway, it turned out to be a terrific sunset – and it was really nice to be slopping around in the waters of the Shoalhaven estuary once more.
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.
