With the high winds of the last couple of days, the surf along the eastern coastline has been huge. This shot was taken from Newcastle Baths looking across the canoe pool fence and south. Newcastle Ocean Baths with its art deco pavilion dates back to about 1911 and is one of Newcastle’s outstanding historic landmarks and is a popular open air studio for amateur photographers. Currently the pool is empty and the pavilion is undergoing restoration however it is still a top spot to capture the magic of the sea. The canoe pool next door is a shallow oval pool – when I was a child it had a map of the world on the floor of the pool and I found it fascinating to walk ‘all over the world’. Taken with the Nikon D80 using a 55-200 mm lens.
MAGNIFICENT AS A CARD!!
