Artist's Description

A magic afternoon, fish & chips by the waterfront and a stroll along the pathway that leads from Belmont through Greenpoint Reserve and onto Valentine in NSW Australia. With picnic tables and benches conveniently placed at intervals along this walk, it makes it easy not to rush things … to stop and find the time to enjoy the view, listen to the birdlife and watch the sun set. This area was once a quarry and coal mine with pit openings along this shoreline. The history plaques tell the rich history of the area as you walk along the pathway. At this spot I found a huge new jetty not too far from where the tarzan swing was many years ago. The tree still stands but the swing is now gone. Unlike the days we hiked through here with a stream of kids and dogs behind, today there is a sealed walkway and picnic facilities. You can follow the sealed pathway/cylcle way through to Leichhardt Street in Valentine or take the rough track at Green Point that will follow the foreshore of Lake Macquarie over timber bridges and walkways through rainforest, emerging at the foreshore park at Valentine. A dedicated group of volunteers help to maintain this piece of heavan. We nearly lost it a few years back to development but people power won the day. If you have the time, stop by and walk or ride the paths … you will be pleasantly surprised.

This image was taken at the jetty not too far into the walk from the Belmont end. The setting sun has cast its magic golden glow over the landscape creating a very interesting scene.

Taken with the Nikon D90, Tamron 18-270 mm lens and hand held. Shot at 1/60, F8, 400 ISO, 185 mm focal length. Please note this is almost as is from the camera … the only tweek was with that I hit the contrast a twidge♥
