Another shot from my day at Elwood beach, Melbourne, with Caroline Gorka.

This poor old pier has been left to decay. A once very active boat ramp, it was replaced many moons ago with a newer ramp and yacht club. This one has become a bit of a landmark since, and its old dilapidated yet unique look attracts plenty of photographers. So it still has some use to the world.

    Well done indeed Andrew, great effects, they both grew old( the jetty and the image ) together.

  • Now that you mention it, I think that’s what I was trying to do Wayne, didn’t realise at the time! Thanks a lot mate, really appreciate that!
