Palm beach is the northernmost beach in Sydney. It is a wide curved beach which on this day had large waves around 3 metres coming into the red-coloured sandy beach. On the right is part of Pittwater where many yachts are moored. The thin piece of land between is a a strip of sand. Taken halfway up the Barrenjoey lighthouse hill a steep 20 minute walk to the top but the views make it worthwhile. First time we'd climbed up here.
Workshop shows the lighthouse at the top.

Very nice shot from the top of Barrenjoey headland. I've always wanted to do the walk up to there but as yet....
Good composition, just enough of both sides to show the ocean and the calm of Pittwater.

This is a beautiful place and what a contrast of water activity as the right side of the water is calm. Nice light and colours with this very long section of beach. This does look like a popular place. Thanks Murray :-)

Simply great view! I should have climbed there myself while visiting the place. It's interesting to compare waters of open sea and bay without waves. Good foreground too.

A superb high pov. I caught the bus there from Dee Why years ago, before I got interested in photography. The view of Whale Beach was superb. Brings back memories. Tfs!

The curve of the beach and the waves reaching it are assets to the composition. The point of view leads our eyes to the top of the hill. The colors are enhanced by the light which is giving a good contrast to them. have a nice day.

Good curving line in the composition!
The format fits the subject well, and the strong surf is for sure an eye-catcher...
The elevated point of view shows the place well, and the colour reproduction is admirable!
