Footprints in The Sand - Sydney Beaches - Palm Beach, - The HDR Series - Sydney,Australia by 

Palm Beach is located probably about a hour by car an d bus, it is located on a spit of sand with Broken Bay on one side and the ocean on the other at its tip it is dominated by Barenjoey headland and light house. Properties in this area can be priced in the $millions.

A favourite with Australias growing list of rich and famous.

Popular as film location for its sheer beauty, for those soapie fans it is the base for the Australian SOAPIE Home & Away.. yes there is a “Summer bAy”

It i also about 10 minutes from where I live

This shot is also another in my exploration of the HDR technique generated from 4 bracketed shot taken at sunrise

    Very effective! The intense blue of the sky combined with the cloud drama and the deep bronze of the sand really makes the shot. I’ll have to try HDR myself. Speaking of the cloud drama – I really like the way the clouds pull you into the shot towards the horizon.
