Tidal Pool - Sydney Beaches - The HDR Series - Mona Vale Beach Pool, Sydney Australia by 


Sydney Beaches quite often feature tidal swimming pools that offer swimming facilities for swimmers not wanting to venture into the surf, unfortunately the pool at Mona Vale at times of heavy seas and high tides combine to let the surf completely surround and enter the pool.

Mona Vale Beach is one of the many beaches a short trip from Sydney, located in the beach side suburb of Avalon, you can get there by car or bus with 60 minutes

Sydneys Northern beaches are a great photo opportunity, combine it with a good wine and a seafood platter . in one word PARADISE.

Its’s where I live, its hard but someone has to live here

This shot was taken around just after sunrise, this is another in my exploration of the HDR technique-

Equipment: Nikon D300, my trusty Sigma 10-20mm lens, no filters and processed in Photomatix HDR software
