I’m off to Adelaide for a conference in a few days time but taking a few days beforehand to tour around Adelaide and its surrounds as I have never been there before. So while I am away I have scheduled a few posts and can’t wait to see what develops photography wise in South Australia. I’ll keep you posted!
It is a long beach, quite open to the elements. I was hoping to walk around to the Giants causeway which is a wonderful feature just at the tip of Fingal Head. It is columnar jointing if you please and is a fascinating natural occurring rock formation which I have been quite interested to photograph. I did take one months ago but it was from the top of the head and not great.
I found a fantastic picture in a tourism guide but when I walked around to look I decided whoever took the shot must have been quite nimble, young and foolhardy. I am not sure this one is for me but on a low tide day I might venture around again and see what its like. Still on my bucket list to photograph.
I wasn’t disappointed though as it was an overcast day which made for beautiful colours in the water and the clouds. It looked like an artist had painted both on the day I was there.
Also a little further north up the beach there were quite a few old tree branches which always adds a bit of character. To the very north of Fingal Beach is a metal pier. I am not sure why it’s there, but there it is. I have always wanted to go up and take some photos but there is a dirty big sign on the dirt road to that part of Fingal that says No Entry so I have never explored there before. My friend said that everyone uses it and wasn’t deterred so off we went. I did get a few pictures of this area.
One lesson to be learnt – never try to screw on your ND filter whilst the water is flowing towards you – you end up with a wet filter with sand and sea water all through it and now its non functional. Thank goodness it was a cheap filter otherwise I would have been very mad at myself. Below is my gallery of Fingal beach.
