Winter morning Hawks Nest beach

Dear readers

I am breaking into my Sydney winter series to post a photo from a quick break a couple of months ago to Hawks Nest on the central coast. I was experimenting with the shutter priority setting to get shots of moving water and got this early morning reflection of clouds on the beach.

I am going to post it over at Weekend Reflections. See blog roll. I am there with all the other contributors at the bottom of the page at no 47!
If you've visited here and like my fledgling blog leave a comment!
Have a good weekend,


  1. What a gorgeous capture, Val! And welcome to the fun! Look forward to seeing more your pics! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I really like photos that show movement - slowing the shutter works so well for water and fast-moving clouds. Greatly enjoying your photos :-)

  3. Oooee! Thank you ladies.
    Kat the thing is how low to go with the shutter speed. The effect that is pleasing to the eye is so subjective. On the other hand I have found Shutter Priority useful for things that are just moving slightly, like flowers in the breeze.
    Sylvia do you have a photo blog?

  4. Wow, this cloud is huge ! Is shape is quite rare too : nice catch on the reflection...

  5. Congratulations with the new blog! You seem to be doing very nice indeed. Experimenting with the shutter settings and water is always fun - the results can be very different. I see you have some nice close-ups of flowers too. Keep up the good work!

  6. Thank you Tsuki, welcome.
    Rune Thank you! i am very glad to finally join the photo blogging community.

  7. An amazing shot! I am very much an amateur with a passion for photography that I am just discovering. I don't even know what you mean by "experimenting with shutter priority" so I hope I can learn more from you as a new follower.

  8. It's a fantastic shot Val.. you're talented.
