Self Indulged Online Travel Magazine



This is one of my favourite captures from Yorke Peninsula.  Wallaroo is a great spot with a great name. As I was wandering around looking for a good location to take some pics at sunset, these three posts and the colourful rocks caught my eye.  This was a 30 second exposure just after the sun had disappeared.  I was really enjoying taking the photos, capturing that dreamy misty water when a local bloke came down to where I was shooting and told me a little bit about the place.  I was stoked to discover that I was actually shooting the last remains of the original Wallaroo jetty which was built in 1861.  148 years later this is all that remains.

    I had to look at this a couple of times to take it in . The result is I like it . subtle and really nice colour for type of shot it is.

    I’m sure there would be a couple of more shots from different angles here.

    Nice one, well done Sandy.
