Port Macquarie, on the beautiful Mid North Coast of NSW, has some of the coasts’ best surfing beaches. As a foil to my previous picture, standing on the sand and just looking at the waves, listening to their sounds can be both relaxing and invigorating. Perhaps she is watching one of her family.
This beach was one of Dennis Gay’s favourite haunts and this picture is dedicated to him.

Nikon D80, Sigma 17-70mm lens @ 17mm, Program setting, 1/400 sec @ f 10, ISO 400, Pattern metering, Auto WB. Processed and converted to B&W in Photoshop Elements 3.

An old photographer and his dog trying to find what turns a photograph into a worthwhile picture. Perhaps try to take a worthwhile photograph in the first place? The digital darkroom is a creative, fascinating place. If only I could learn to use it and the cameras I have to best effect… I love “mucking around”, as you can see!

Now, you know all my stuff is Copyright If you try and pinch any of it, I’ll jump through your screen and rip your bloody arms off!
