Vast sands and surf at Barwon Heads Bluff with a view across the river to the seaside township of Ocean Grove. Both areas are found on the Bellarine Peninsular in the Geelong Region of Victoria Australia and facing upon Bass Strait.

Lovely capture and pov ~ the sea looks very calm and peaceful there!
thankyou Susie, its beautiful. This is low tide on the ebb about to turn. The waves became huge shortly after as the water flooded over the area trying to squeeze into the narrow river entrance. The dry sand shows the delination debris at high tide..still awesome but quite different.
So very pretty. I love the names of places in Australia. . .
Thankyou Rhonda : )…most names in Australia are of aboriginal origin…its an interesting language and has given us some unique names. R : )
Thank you John :) I couldnt resist this scene, had to capture it. Especially as its in the area I grew up. Spent many happy days on these beaches. Rhonda :)
Gorgeous view! I love it!
Thank you Stella :)It is magical and so different when the tide is in. The whole area of sand is covered in water then except for the very edges on either side. A big contrast. Rhonda :)
MY kind of beach, Rhonda..
You have good taste then Chris, mine too!…best of both worlds here..this side leads into Barwon River, just round the bluff is one of our famous surf beaches…13th Beach…on the other side of this shot in the distance you can see the Ocean Grove surf beach…I spent a lot of time down there, a fav place to take my horse for a run and of course catch up with the surfies…lol :)
Wonderful capture,Rhonda! So lovely and peaceful beach….
Thank you so much Paul, it is a wonderful beach although not peaceful in holiday seasons when it becomes very crowded…lol
Terrific capture Rhonda. Great lighting, colour and composition. Well done.
