Shelley Beach is another of Portsea’s wonderful stretches of bayside coast. This beach, as with others near by, hosts several interesting jetties and beach houses. I really love this photo for it’s layering of colours – the effect in the sky is called ’Neptune’s Rings’ and is a rare atmospheric phenomenon. When there is a certain amount of particles in the atmosphere (perhaps as a result of bushfires), the spectrum of light is separated in to more prominent and distinct bands of colour than would normally be seen. This effect, combined with the colours of the plantlife make the scene so interesting.
