Victoria South Coast - "The Eagles Nest"


We are lucky in Australia, if you like the beach.  We have some of the nicest beaches in the world.  Here in Victoria is no exception, except water isn't always ideal temperature, but refreshing.  Here I've singled out one small section of coast not far from where I live, as I only had a couple of hours to take photos.  The Eagles Nest is a rock formation not far from Wonthaggi, in South Gippsland.  Situated below high cliffs (unstable don't go near the edge or sit under them) and beside a beautiful and somewhat isolated beach it is a nices spot to photograph, and at low tide you can safely walk to it, at high tide you will get wet.  Also a popular spot for surfers with nice curling waves on the right days, not too big so suitable for beginners. The sun was out a few days ago so I jumped at the opportunity to get the camera out, sadly after a week of heavy rain the water was a bit on the murky side but still photographed okay. Hope you enjoy the photos.blankstare

Those new fangled flyie things sure do make scenery more interesting by gum.

Very nice Jim.

These drony things are a great asset to photography enthusiasts.  There are strict rules with them for good reason. Naturally some people don't care about rules and they are very annoying buzzzing around near people.  I bought mine with the intention of getting photos of places I can't walk to, when we finally get to travel north again, won't be this year.

 Just be aware that you need to apply for permision to launch a drone in a nature reserve.

Thanks Graham, got the regs for all states. Drones are a great asset for photographers but like everything, there are inconsiderate minority who will ruin the privelage. As of July next year, flying drones even for recreation will require a licence.
