Take me there

North Narra Pool-3

ISO 100   18mm   f / 22   1.6sec

Empty, tranquil and almost cool looking, the image I shot here is not the usual sight you would expect find at this locale on an average weekend morning.

A visit to the saltwater rock-pool offers an iconic slice of North Narrabeen life. Whether dawn, dusk or anytime in-between, fortunate locals can be seen swimming, surfing or sometimes just strolling with the family pooch. Either way they enjoy the wild beauty of the Turrimetta headland and the surrounding stretches of red sand that comprise one of the most wonderful back-yard’s that any Sydney sider can lay claim to. Just across the mouth of the lagoon where Narrabeen lake drains into the see, lies one of Sydney’s prime surf spots. Comprising of a world class point break and sand covered rock shelf known as “The Alley” this northern-most section of Narrabeen Beach is one of the county’s select National Surfing Reserves.

 

Underneath The Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge

ISO 100  35mm  f22  1.3sec

The majestic Hawkesury River Railway Bridge carries the northern line across these murky waters. The empty pillars to the right carried the original railway bridge which first opened for use in 1889. There are many incredible old photographs of the structure which was a major feat of engineering at the time.  The style of this shot is an homage to the photographers who documented the construction of the original bridge and the new replacement bridge in the 1940’s.
