The Making of 'Tacking Point from Sea Acres':

The tenth in a series of nineteen waterscape photographs chosen by the developers of Coast Apartments in my home town of Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia. The large black and white prints grace the walls of the foyers, gymnasium and lift on permanent display in the luxury complex.

The series gives the viewer a journey from the Hastings River, that runs through the town and down the coast to The Gap at Diamond Head Beach in the Crowdy Bay National Park.

Ahoy Robert!

Great to see you up on the lookout checking this seascape.

Thanks big time for your very encouraging feedback.

Mate it would be so good to have you or any of my fellow BPers here in Port. Unfortunately I could not be involved in a Port Macquarie Meet-up on the big day due to previous camera club commitments. (Next year?)
