The Golden Shores Of Bar Beach
I took this photo while standing on the relatively new viewing platform that sits above the cliff at the northern end of Bar Beach in Newcastle, Australia. The viewing platform has been integrated into a walking track called the Bathers Way that stretches from the lighthouse at Nobbys Headland south to Glenrock Reserve (all up, it’s a 5km coastal walk).
It’s a great view there and although I have stood there before and looked at the scenery in all directions (mainly looking seaward), it was the first time that I had considered taking any photos from that spot and now I’m so glad that I did.
