Photographer's Note

Cloudy sky last night and the waves were rolling in.
These are some of the Hawkesbury Sandstone blocks.
Umina Beach has one unbroken sand shoreline that has been divided in name only: Umina Beach (south western section) and Ocean Beach (north eastern section). Both beaches have their own Surf Life Saving Club (refer to Sports Clubs section). The only other type of shoreline is located at Umina Point (Mt Ettymalong), a Hawkesbury Sandstone headland that adjoins to the south western end of Umina Beach.
Umina Beach is geographically located on the north side of Broken Bay at the river mouth of Hawkesbury River. The formation of Umina Beach and 'The Peninsula' is due to sand deposition that has been influenced by (and not limited to) climatic conditions, soil-binding flora, Hawkesbury Sandstone formations (eg; Box Head, Barrenjoey and Umina Point), wave patterns and tidal amplitude from the Tasman Sea, Hawkesbury River and Brisbane Water.
These were taken using 2 Lee NDG filters one hard 9 and one soft 9.
