Updated: Feb 8, 2020
Wow, this sunset at Bridgewater Bay, Blairgowrie came from know where. After doing some long exposures I had packed up my filters to go home when the sky started to go red. You can see the transformation in the images below. There was only three us left on the beach to experience the grand finale of a scorching 40 degree day with this amazing show.
Bridgewater Bay famous for Keyhole Rock and the Jumping Rock is located in the Mornington Peninsula National Park, at the end of St Johns Wood Road. The beach is backed by 10 to 20 m high calcarenite bluffs, capped by sand dunes. 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 beach is filled with rock pools that are only visible at low tide.
