Windy Harbour by georgieboy98

Currently unavailable for purchase

A place that seldom gets visited due to it’s isolation on the extreme south coast of south Western Australia within the bounds of the D’Entrecasteaux National Park. There are absolutely no facilities here at all yet CALM (Conservation and Land Management) have built some wonderful sealed roads and lookouts at nearby Point D’Entrecasteaux. This doesn’t alter the fact that it is some 35 kms off the main Manjimup to Albany road at Northcliffe. Normally it ibears the brunt of the Southern Ocean as it pounds our shores and seldom escapes a mention in our weather reports. I love the place and go out of my way to get here as often as possible.
Photo taken with my Sony DSC R1 with it’s fixed 16-80 Carl Zeiss lens. I was in aperture priority mode and had an ND4 filter over the lens.

    Beautifully captured Peter.

  • Very many thanks Myra. One thing about taking photos at this place – there’s seldom any likelihood of any people getting in the way!
    Take care

  • Thanks very much indeed Ann. It’s a delightful that most people only know of from the weather reports. We’ve had a fair bit of rain lately but won’t get much, if any, more now until April or so.

    It does look stunning Peter – nice to see an isolated beach !

  • Thank you Roy. It never ceases to amaze me that a beach like this can be so unknown to the vast majority of West Aussies, for the simple reason they refuse to venture off the main roads! I’ve found several places very similar to this that are easily accessible with an ordinary 2WD vehicle, but which are off the main drag.
