Jervis Bay Vs Botany Bay

Jervis Bay vs Botany Bay - (c) Gerard Blacklock

Artist license is something every tog uses, whether it simply be the way a image is framed or the way it is processed, images can and do lie 🙂 – this one is no exception, this spot on the East side of Botany bay is probably the only spot I have seen that is not strewn with washed up bottles, rubbish and general crap, just the other morning I was standing in a spot several kilometers to the south of here and all around me on the shoreline was all manner of rubbish – and that was in the Nature Reserve section of the Bay 🙂 So, this is not really a true representation of the true nature of Botany Bay.

However, I have chosen to try and portray this particular composition as something one would see at Jervis bay, a place which I wish I could visit more often 🙂 For those not familiar with Jervis Bay, it does apparently have some of the white-ist sand in Aussie land and whilst a bit full of old naval junk it is pretty clean 😉

So here you have it, Botany Bay, from Kurnell, the city lights and new shipping terminal just in sight on the horizon.

  1. Nice colors and mood. Out of curiosity – does the Nikon D7000 have an automatic panorama mode, and how might that compare with this 4-stitched-frames panorama?

  2. +Mitul Sarkar The D7000 does not have a panorama mode, the panorama technology of phones is pretty darn good now and I am sure there are other camera's out there which do it. However, I think to achieve optimum panos I think you would have to take individual frames and stitch them with photoshop or similiar. Thanks for the comment mate.

  3. Interesting Gerry – it feels like a much longer exposure than 2 seconds
    I like the colour palette in this one – the water looks very turquoise (like I saw a lot of in Hawaii)
