Merewether Baths - Beachcomber Series by 

“Merewether Baths – Beachcomber Series”

An original digital photograph taken at the very scenic Merewether Baths on a perfect Winters afternoon in 2012. There were lots of waves breaking over the rock shelf behind the pool so I waited until the larger waves started to break and timed the capture accordingly.

The pool looked stunning in such brilliant, sunny weather. There were also a few Boogie Board riders enjoying some very crisp little waves beside the pool at a surf spot called “Ladies” – a great place to take action shots.

All Water in Motion and Reflections in Water – Friday 17/08/2012

The photo was captured using a Canon 450D and a Standard Canon 18 – 55 mm lens:
F-stop: f/8
Exposure time: 1/800 sec
ISO speed: ISO-200
Exposure bias: -0.7 step
Focal length: 18 mm
WB: Sunny
Aperture Priority Mode
Hand Held

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    nicely contrasting scene with the calm of the pool and crashing waves beyond – looks a great day – cheers

  • It was an excellent afternoon, thanks Maggie! :-) I walked around the pool surrounds, looking for new angles and things I haven’t spotted/captured there before. I was going to put lots of graphics on this one, but decided I didn’t want them covering parts of the scene.

    it’s a great location, I love it down there. Great shot!

  • I’ve photographed the beach much more often than the pool but this day I wanted to see what other angles and shots were possible that I haven’t thought about before.

    Thanks for your feedback! I had a look at most of your recent sunset shots at these baths and they were all excellent!

    Super capture James !!! ☺♥

  • Thanks Evita! It was looking amazing that afternoon. I had the small lens on too, so it made me photograph the place differently to the way I usually would. :)xx
