I am home from Aireys Inlet, very tired, but fairly happy with the results. I took over 1400 images, and well I have a lot of sorting to do. I think you are going to be seeing them for quite a few days to come.
On Friday night, as I stated already, I stopped in Anglesea to get some shots. I was looking for something in particular, and while I couldn’t quite get to what I wanted, I did see a fence near the cliffs, that I wanted to take photos of. I had seen the fence on Google street view, and thought it would be great to photograph, but by the time I found the place, I realised I had parked at the wrong place. So had to settle with what I could get from where I was.
These cliffs are amazing. If you zoom right into the image you can see the fence I was talking about, it is over there on the left, can you see it? When you are driving into Anglesea from Aireys Inlet you can see the massive cliffs. I would love to get closer to them one day and take some better photos.
The rock outcrop at the end of this section are amazing, but I couldn’t get any closer this time. I didn’t want to stay too long, as I really needed to get to the house to take some photos for the owner. The idea was just to take a quick look and see what was there, take a couple of shots and then to decided whether it would be worth coming back. I knew it would be.
When the others arrived on Friday night, I told them about this place and we decided that on our way home today we would stop by and take a look at the fence. It was unfortunate that the tide was in. We could get close, but not as close as we would have liked. There is also another one like this, but with the high tide, we couldn’t get anywhere near it. Another time. We didn’t fancy getting caught by the incoming tide, again. Yes again, myself and another get very wet feet early this morning when some waves jumped up over some rocks unexpectedly, or rather came up much higher than we were expecting. Probably the funniest thing that happened on the weekend.
It is great to see something different like this. Behind it are large rocks. We surmised that it was there to help stop erosion of the cliffs behind it. They will only stop it for a short time, in the grand scheme of things.
It was great to go there and see it more closely. I really want to go back and explore it a lot more. Perhaps in different weather and when the tide is out.
As I said in the beginning, I took a lot of photos. Many of those are 5 bracketed shots of one image, but I have a lot of work ahead of me sorting through them all. I thought I might put the ones I put on my blog and some others on my website for people to see and buy if they wish. I have the website for the cycling, so it only makes sense to use it for these images as well.
I haven’t said anything about the processing, however, they are all HDR’s and post editing has been done in Photoshop. I thought I might try some different things with some of them, not telling now, have to wait and see. More tomorrow.
