Hillarys Boat Ramp

30 01 2009


Went up to Hillarys on afternoon this week with Neal hoping to get some shots of the boats in the pens . To our suprise when we arrived all the boats have now had fencing errected around them and we couldnt get close to them with out going for a swim . The light was quite good so we had a look around to see what other points of view we could get , have to say they have really wrecked the photographic oppurtinites with that big ugly extension they have done at the other end of the docks , you used to be able to get quite a nice shot of the harbour a few years back  . I got this quick 4 image stitch just before the light faded .

Nice capture Kirk. I must say you are correct Hillarys now is one big eye sore. With just one dominate feature the pub Breakwater. Do our planners not travel to see what can be achieved from other cities towns, looks like they do not.

Nicely composed Kirk.
Like you said, the new breakwater does stick out like a sore thumb.
I have taken a few different shots down there since it has been built but am yet to really capture what I was after.
