Even though I visited this location to shoot very recently, I was drawn back this day to capture another sunset at Bridgewater Bay, Blairgowrie on the Mornington Peninsula. Sunsets are never the same so I knew my images would be very different from earlier in the week and I was hoping for more colour.
This amazing location can be found in the Mornington Peninsula National Park, either side of Koreen Point. St Johns Wood Road runs 2 km straight from Blairgowrie to a car park behind the point. All three beaches are backed by 10 to 20 m high calcarenite bluffs, capped by sand dunes, with some of the dunes reaching down to the beach at Fowlers and Montforts. The beaches are narrow and only active at high tide, being fronted by over 100 m of rocks and reef flats that dominate the surf zone. Waves average 1.5 m on the reefs, but are lower at the beaches.The rock formation provides loads of fun for visitors to jump from into the deep rock pools.
