Photographer's Note

This view is of a small tidal inlet found at the southern end of Kirra beach, at Coolangatta. It is taken approximately 800m north of the Queensland/New South Wales borer. This is a panoramic stitch of 3 separate images, merged using Panorama Maker 4.

I was reasonably happy with the results of the stitching, however I was a little disappointed the curve on the left was cut a little close to the frame. Not particularly dramatic in terms of lighting, a shower of rain was about to pass overhead, but I liked the late afternoon atmosphere and the calmness of the water.

An artificial rock wall just over the NSW border, and continued sand pumping has deposited thousands of tones of sand in this area, resulting in a super-wide beach. In places it is about 300-400metres across and stretches almost unbroken from the border to the Broadwater about 30km to the north (where it becomes more narrow).
