Taken at Point Nepean National Park, Portsea, Victoria.

Point Nepean is truly one of Victoria’s beautiful natural landscapes. A special place with so much to see and discover. Its rich history has played an important role in shaping the early settlement, quarantine and defence of Victoria.

The park is located at the very tip of the Mornington Peninsula, with outstanding coastal scenery and panoramic views of Bass Strait, the Rip and Port Phillip Bay. Visitors can explore the military forts and tunnels, discover the historic Quarantine Station, view the memorial where Prime Minister Harold Holt went missing and enjoy the coastal native trees and grasses which are ideal habitat for many native Australian wildlife.

This is the remains of the cattle jetty at the Quarantine Station, cattle were unloaded here to be quarantined for there entry into Australia

Have been reinvigorated with the photo bug after a long layoff. My first digital camera has really gotten me off my backside and out to play and I have recieved a lot of inspiration here from some of the many talented artists on RB.
I am not sticking with any one style atm but giving anything a bit of a go, some make it here,many dont, but for me its all about pleasure and getting out there.. Thank you for taking the time to check out my work..:-))
