Weekend Wanderings: Exploring the Bay Between Seaford and Edithvale
Recently I’ve been asked to do a job for someone, they want some photos of the beach front along the edge of Port Phillip Bay. The bay is the entrance to Melbourne, and many people live around it. It is salt water, but you don’t get the waves like you get out on the unprotected beaches. The area I have been asked to do is between Seaford and Mordiallic, an area I am not familiar with it all, well not the beach side. So the other day I did my first scouting trip down there to see what I could find.
There are a few different piers along there. Some are older and made of wood, which are so much nicer. We found one that was all concrete, and it just didn’t have an character. I still took photos of it and there are images in the gallery of it.
It was the perfect summer day and we noticed lots and lots of people heading to the beach. We were there in the morning. I am going to have to go back a few times, but think now I will wait until school goes back in a weeks time. Look at how gorgeous the water was, beautiful colour.
There are lots of grassy areas along this stretch, and I like how the grass comes out through the sand. Great contrast with the sand, the grass and blue sky. Summer is definitely here.
It was quite windy so I thought I would try a long exposure with the beach boxes in the foreground, but really, the wind was going in the wrong direction, and I don’t like this that much. I think the normal exposure looks better. This is something I have to start working out with the long exposures, the direction of the wind.
There was also some surprising things along the water edge as well. There flowers were everywhere in one spot.
Different walkways for getting to the beach, we liked this one. Very rustic and grassy.
It was a lovely walk along the beach, we didn’t cover the whole area, but I have time. It was good to go down and check the area out, and see what is down there. I haven’t done much to these images, just basic editing, but I know when I do the images for the job there will an expectation that I will give them my signature style.
It is a long weekend here, did I tell you that already, and as this publishes I will be travelling again, and will be away for most of the day. So please leave your comments and I will respond to them when I get back. Enjoy your day.
