Day 5 Redgate Beach

Redgate Beach - Nikon D700 Nikon 24-70 f2.8
Another early photo trip today on our 4th day in Margaret River, now half way through our holiday time.  Whilst yesterday I set off on a walk by myself in the morning, today I was accompanied by my wife Julia and her father Peter.  We were a little later than we should have been to our destination at Redgate Beach, but we certainly enjoyed the photo opportunity presented to us.  The rock at the beach is Gneiss with a red tone to it, which is typical of the region.

Also typical of the region there is a shipwreck which is apparently visible from the car park, and well documented on region specific web sites. The ship was the SS Georgette and drifted aground in December 1876 after it lost power because it's engine fires were extinguished due to a leak which overcame the pumps.

I feel that the light was not ideal for the shoot again due to not getting out of bed early enough, but that does happen on holidays.
