I recently had a very pleasant day walking in the Murramarang National Park on East Coast Australia. Not a lot of photos but here are a couple:

#1 Ripples

As you might guess, this shows reflections in a creek. The ripples are from a fish.

#2 Beach

I was inspired by Dena's recent work to try horizontal panning.

This next was taken with my phone but I'll sneak it in:

Australia is known for kangaroos & beaches but they don't generally go together. This is Pebbly Beach. It's not so well known but I do recommend it to any of you around NSW South coast.

Thanks for looking. C&C always appreciated.

Tony,
Lovely set. I particularly like the ripples.
As for the kangaroos/wallabies on the beach, its not such an unusual sight. I've seen similar on beaches in Victoria and Tasmania on my travels. I guess they come for the edible coastal grasses, but I have also seen one in the shallows.

Nice set.
Drove past there just the other day while going from Merimbula to Jervis Bay, might just have to pop in for a visit the next time I'm around those parts.

The first two are outstanding images, Tony - and the third is nice (I am not sure whether these animals are really "cute")! I just love that panning!

TFS!

I really like all three - varied, different, interesting. #2 is the stand out but I am someone who loves simplicity and lots of negative space - a beautiful image.

Jozioau - Interesting that you've seen similar sights elsewhere. Maybe I need to get out more!

SnowFella - Sounds like you & I were travelling that part of the world at the same time. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I.

Dena, Harald, Roger & Fred - Thanks for the encouragement. And I must admit #2 is my personal favourite.

Cheers

Think you beat me there by about a week, left Sydney on the 4th and spent 3 nights up at Jindabyne before heading for the south coast.
Was a rather nice 1500km roadtrip to say the least, albeit rather windy for most of it.

Hi Tony,

#1 is, indeed, a rather special shot - it has a real sense of fluidity about it which often is hard to replicate in a 'flat' image like a photograph. I also like the second shot; the simple panning effect and pastel colours create a rather soothing image to the eye.

As for the third - this brings back many happy memories from 2015 where we spent a few hours exploring Pebbly Beach and photographing the many Kangaroos there; a rather special day and some lovely shots to take home with us. I don't believe this is that unusual but it does look a little odd the first time you see them on the sands!

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil.

Well, might class yourself as lucky having seen that part of the coast when you did as I'm sad to say it's now alight!...along with most of the NSW coast it feels like. Fires all the way from Eden to Byron Bay at the moment.
