Chinamens Beach Rusty fence…

dsc_4211_2.jpgWell it was time to do the other end of Chinamens Beach, fortunately all my images are pretty ordinary since I left the VR (Vibration Reduction) on whilst on my tripod and also had ISO set to 1250 from the night before… what a crappy eh.. especially since I got up at the cracker of dawn…

Nonetheless there was some nicely composed pictures, which can be all viewed here….

The attached image is of, what appears to be, a fence of some sort to separate Chinamens Beach from the adjacent beach which is part of a military testing zone – probably has not been used for many years but ….

Well I will be up there again soon and this time, 3rd time, I will remember not to leave the ISO or VR on …. oh and it will be an absolutely magic morning.. :)
