A few of my seascaping mates and I headed down to Wollongong Harbour at dawn this morning for a seascape shoot.
The forecast was for periodic showers, and driving down in the dark, I experienced downpours and the occasional flash of lightning.
I looked at the sky, and was delighted to see clear patches here and there, which indicated that the morning would not be a completely overcast, grey mess.
As the light increased, some great shooting opportunities presented themselves.
South of Wollongong Harbour is a fantastic rock shelf with a lot of great views. Here’s one:
Wollongong Harbour and the surrounding area has such enormous photographic potential, with so many interesting scenes to shoot, that it easily warrants a good three or four visits to shoot the area properly.
Photographic interest includes:
- rock shelves;
- tidal pools;
- two lighthouses;
- two breakwaters;
- moored boats;
- concrete walls and structures; and
- old cannons on the hill.
Here’s my view of one of the cannons overlooking the sea:
I have a few more pleasing images from this morning’s session, and will process and publish those in due course.
All in all, Wollongong Harbour makes a great location for a photoshoot and has a lot to offer. We were lucky that the conditions this morning were moody, dramatic and easy on exposure.
