Photographer's Note

This surfer was heading out for an early morning surf on Easter Sunday.
The sunrise- partially scattered by low lying cloud was quite beautiful. The clouds acted as ND filters to some extent but I still needed to use my graduated ND for this shot.
The reflections of the clouds in the still waster on the rock shelf were amazing.
Bateau Bay is about 6 km south of the town of The Entrance and 17 km northeast of Gosford's central business district. In 2006, it had a population of 11,599 people. Bateau Bay Beach provides access to Crackneck Point, which is a popular local surfing spot. Crackneck Point Lookout (about 100 metres above sea level) is a short distance from the beach, where there is a large clearing and carpark with information boards and a picnic-barbecue area.
Much of the Bateau Bay area is dominated by the southern 140 ha section of Wyrrabalong National Park. A distinctive foreshore feature of the park's coastal cliffs are extensive rock platforms, which are good bases for rock fishing or low tide exploration or PHOTOGRAPHY!. Wyrrabalong National Park is a haven for marine, bird, and native wildlife, which include goannas, bandicoots, fantails, and the tawny frogmouth. A 1.6 km walk through Wyrrabalong National Park links Crackneck Point Lookout and Forresters Beach, which is where some of my other recent posts were taken.
