Mannering Park

I took the long way home from Catherine Hill Bay. About 10 years ago, I lived in Mannering Park and took some great photos there. Mannering Park is located on the very south end of Lake Macquarie. It is about 120km north of Sydney. It was getting dark when I arrived last night, but I cranked the camera up to 6400 iso and took some pics as an experiment. here are the results.

Catherine Hill Bay

Well yesterday was not the best day to take photos, but I went out just the same as I wanted to try out a new tripod I bought during the week. There is still a lot of smoke in the sky and the sea mist made things not so sharp as I would like. Catherine Hill Bay was formerly the main port that was used to transport coal to all parts of the world. It has been closed for many years now. The town is an old town with workers cottages. Unfortunately developers are encroaching on the area and it is no longer as secluded as it was. Here are some of the photos I took._MG_2691 (2)_MG_2697_MG_2699_MG_2704 (2)_MG_2707 (2)_MG_2716 (2)_MG_2721 (2)_MG_2724_MG_2733_MG_2743 (2)_MG_2746 (2)_MG_2752

Belmont baths. One week later

I had previously posted some beautiful sunset pictures I took from Belmont baths last week. In contrast, with all the smoke from bushfires increasing. This is what it is like this afternoon.

It’s eerie.

Sunset at Belmont Baths

 

 

Last Sunday, I met with a photography group to capture the sunset from Belmont Baths, which is on the east side of Lake Macquarie in NSW Australia. It is usually a spectacular place for sunsets. This week it was made even more so with the smoke in the air from the bushfires. One bushfire was directly west of the lake, which made the sunset very dramatic. I hope you enjoy the sunset, created by God, captured by me.

Sunrise on Brighton Beach

I took these photos a while ago. I was making use of my insomnia. At 4 am one morning I walked down to the beach and took these sunrise photos. The colours have not been altered. I may have experimented a little with the aperture and shutter-speed, but as the sun rose above the colours and then was hidden again from view, the colours changed. A man stood on the beach singing worship songs and welcomed the new day. Joggers worshiped their own bodies as they ran past, oblivious to the beauty that was emerging beyond. A plane takes off, with the start of the new day, new adventures await those on board the plane. The rowing crew pauses for a breather and watch as God paints the sky. I included a few photos from the other side of the bay, which I took at Sunset a few nights later. I have presented these photos as a slideshow. Enjoy and feel free to share it.

Sawmillers Reserve North Sydney

From this wonderful hidden park in North Sydney, One can see across the water to the new Barangaroo development. The large building reaching for the sky is going to be the new 5 star casino.

Even though the skyline is beautiful, I found the closer surroundings more suitable for photos and sketches today.

River Views

Where I painted the Ghost Gum yesterday was on the banks of an often forgotten river in Sydney called Cooks River. Here are some photos from a wonderful park on Permanent Avenue where you can access the river. I hope you enjoy them.
