Spring feels like it’s just round the corner, so it’s good time to be out and about taking pictures around the beach.
I got a new piece of gear this morning, a 10-stop Neutral Density Filter which allows only 1/1024th the amount of natural light through the camera lens. As a result, very long exposures are required and this causes anything that moves in the image to be blurred. Handy for creating an interesting effect on the ocean…….
The Bogey Hole is a popular swimming spot in Newcastle, located beneath a headland and providing a spectacular vantage point to view the ocean. It was carved out in 1819 for the personal use of Major James Morisset who was the commandant of the penal colony.
It’s a steep path down from the top of the hill.
The existing steps and handrails are a bit dilapidated, and Newcastle Council has approved a restoration programme.
It’s a great place to catch the sun in the morning.
