The Gap #2

Uploaded: December 04, 2011


We have reached the end of our journey here at The Gap at the south end of Diamond Head Beach, Crowdy Bay National Park, Mid-north Coast, NSW, Australia.

Just minutes after making this shot I was hit by a really savage southerly storm.

This image was not used in the end but was on file as a reserve in case somethig happened to any of the others. I remember having a great time in processing it.

The Making of 'The Gap #2':

The last 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.
