Parton dusk fishing
Two fisherman arrived just as I wast setting up this shot at dusk about half an hour after sunset. In the blue hour.
Moonee Beach, Catherine Hill Bay, Newcastle, NSW
© All Rights Reserved - Black Diamond ImagesMoonee Beach, not to be confused with the Moonee Beach, just north of Coffs Harbour, lies in a small bay just over the hill to the south of heritage listed Catherine Hill Bay, just south of Newcastle. Until relatively recently the South Catherine Hill Bay precinct, including Moonee Beach, was set in the midst of the degraded Moonee Coal Mine site and substantial adjoining coastal forest. The landscape here has dramatically changed since the developer, 'Roses Group', saw off substantial community challenges dating back 10 years to finally win approval to rehabilitate and establish a 550 lot subdivision with a new access road direct to the old Pacific Highway. The new subdivision has been given the name 'Beaches Catherine Hill Bay South'. Given the increased number of visitors the narrow NPWS beach access track through the low scrub and degraded littoral rainforest leading to the beach and lagoon appears to be rapidly deteriorating. My observations led me to question if the developer was required to provide a financial contribution to the NPWS to provide an environmentally protective boardwalk and track to this idyllic beach. Additionally it appeared to me that as this subdivision grows parking close to the nearest beach access off Flowers Drive is going to become very limited. The South Catherine Hill Bay 'Beaches Subdivision' is just getting up and running with roads now completed and some big houses already built there. It is to be hoped the community bands together to protect this beach hinterland and beach access for future generations. www.domain.com.au/news/after-10-year-battle-developer-pre...

Beachies - St Pete Beach
After a weekend stuck in the house by me and my wife with two cases of the crud, this memory looks very inviting. I could use a few days on the beach with some great sunsets like we had this particular evening. Maybe we can work something in somewhere in the upcoming future...Technical Information (or Nerdy Stuff): Camera - Nikon D7200 (handheld backwards) Lens – Nikkor 18-300mm Zoom ISO – 400 Aperture – f/9 Exposure – 1/100 second Focal Length – 18mmThe original RAW file was processed with Adobe Camera Raw and final adjustments were made with Photoshop CS6."For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~Jeremiah 29:11

Looking to Roads End
What would a weekend be at the Oregon Coast if I did not take a few land/seascape pics. This was taken from the "D" river area looking into the distance North to Roads End state park.
Lydd on Sea
Lydd-on-Sea is a modern village, mostly built after World War II, which consists mainly of bungalows built along the Dungeness coastal road south of Greatstone, Kent, England. The Southern Railway opened a railway station here in 1937 but was closed in 1967. Lydd-on-Sea is part of the ecclesiastical parish of Lydd, now several miles distant, which once had access to the sea. An island in a lake (created by gravel extraction) slightly to the northwest of Lydd-on-Sea is the site of a collection of sound mirrors designed by Dr William Sansome Tucker, to detect the approach of enemy aircraft, in the years before radar had been developed.
These three guys were practicing their synchronizing flying skills on late Friday afternoon before the main fun on Saturday and Sunday. It was amazing how they know what each other was doing and yet fully under control.
