How the other Half Live

Towra Nature Reserve – home of the Little Tern bird
This point has been reamed by humans, from attempted grazing, corn crops, to a radar station to oyster farming and finally recognized as a significant wetlands of the Sydney Basin with a little island now home to a thriving population of Little Terns 🙂 and the occasional pelican.

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.
