The Nullarbor Plain runs right to the edge of the Southern Ocean and the Great Australian Bight with the most northly point being called the Head of the Bight. This is where many Souhern Right whales gather each year to given birth and then spend winter before returning to the Antarctic region for summer.
There were plenty of pairs (mother and baby) of whales their but none of my photos of them were good enough for TE.
This view is looking east towards an area of extensive white sand hills that stretch some distance inland.

Very pleasant scenery to watch. I could stroll all day enjoying the blue waters and watching the whales go by. It must be the combination of blue and green that makes this photo so soothing. Great composition with the hill in the f/g and the exposed rock in the ocean placed right where it belongs.

Simple and very attractive composition. I like the graphical effect of this image. Well done.

Hi Ian !!
so far the photos from your last trip are Fantastic.....
This is a very contrasting view..... in regards to textures & colours.
I am sure that people do not realise how remote this location is.
Keep them coming
