My weekend in Sydney turned out to be quite a beach tour. Saturday afternoon Lisa drove me around on the eastern suburbs, showing many beaches of that region (Thanks!!). The most famous of them is Bondi Beach. Not far from it is Bronte Beach, a bit smaller and somewhat harder to find and certainly less touristy. But quite popular, lots of people are still there while shadows get longer.

Oh, I love our TE-community very much. We have got big opportunities in this world.
Excellent evening shot, it is very unusual view of Sydney without the skyscrapers. Perfect quality, fine details. I think it is a result of your skills and good equipment.
Best wishes from LA!

Hi Kari. Nice time of day with the evening sun hitting the waves, swimmers, patches of sand and importantly, the houses on the hill. Especially effective are the white fencing with the gentle curves which complement the curving shadows in the foreground. Regards. Klaudio.

This late afternoon picture has great colours and a very warm and pleasant light. There's a lot of human activities going on and a nice view of the city. The good sharpness allows me to watch it all closely.

I like the long shadows raking across the beach and revealing the textural details. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Well composed with the horizon level and well away from the centre. Nice bonus shot of Lisa too! Tfs!

good on Lisa to show you around the burbs of Sydney.
great to see other views, new views, and this is it.
makes me wonder how much those homes are on the beachfront with water views! and they look like HUGE homes, so i'm sure they are mega expensive.
fun shot of a different and new view.

A beautiful and lesser-known angle of one of my favourite Sydney beaches. Can't say the same for the rough head in your Workshop, but thanks for the kind note. I love how the long shadows play across the sand. The colour is great and you evened out the light and shade really cleverly. Nice work, have a Happy Easter!

Nice picture of Bronte beach when light is coming down. Good light management whereas it didn't seem so easy with such shadows. I like the half-half composition, quite harmonious.
