The beach near Wonthaggi, Victoria, Australia

The beach near Wonthaggi, Victoria, Australia

Beaches. Part of the life of many Australians. We live on an island continent, surrounded by sea, so the beach is just part of life. Different beaches in different places.

From the bustling beaches of Bondi and Torquay and Scarborough to the lonely, wide and windswept beaches of Eucla and Esperance and Cape Leveque. Australia has beaches, a vast variety of them. Some of these pics may bring back memories for you. They did for me!

Brings back memories of running through tracks like this at Myalup beach near Harvey, Western Australia, when I was a kid.

Silvery reflections of a golden sunset. Memories of childhood days swimming and body surfing, and then the quiet evening wrapped in a towel drinking a warm cup of chocolate while the parents and friends chatted.

The use of black and white takes your eye away from the colour of the scene and focusses it on shapes, textures, ... it's almost tactile.
