Photographer's Note

Forresters Beach is a coastal suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia between Terrigal and Bateau Bay. It is the most northerly suburb of the City of Gosford local government area. Forresters Beach is well known for its reef breaks to surfers. The name "Forresters Beach" comes from Robert Forrester who purchased 50 acres (200,000 m2) of land in 1861.
There is a small car park in the mid point of the beach, if you turn right once you go across the dunes then walk about 5 minutes you arrive at a rocky headland. This is a wonderful place to play with dawn photography.
This boulder is sitting on a rocky shelf and the still water around at this part of the tide cycle reflects the early morning light. There was a gentle flow of water from the bottom right hand corner towards the boulder and so you can see linear collections of sand being swept across the shelf.
This utilised two ND grad filters to balance the light sky and the dark foreground.
