The Mkaing of 'Under the Arch':

This photograph is the twelfth 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.

Well thought framed capture.
Every detail seems to have it´s reason and brings a great balance to the main object.

Love it
