    Coalcliff is a small mining villiage south of Sydney. A couple of dawn shots of the rockpool by Coalcliff Beach. These pictures were taken using auto white balance and have not been enanced. It was a glorious dawn and as vivid as you see here. Taken with an Olympus E-P1 and Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.

    Cheers

    Peter, these are truly amazing colors - not to mention that view! Whenever I see your photographs of this area, I am just want to be there.

    In that first one, that blue highlight of the water outside the manmade pool...well, that is really a show stopper.

    Many thanks for a virtual mini vacation with these photographs, Peter.

    The juxtaposition of hard architectural form over soft natural elements in Photograph No.1, perfectly lit (look at those handrails and the luminescent blue tints around), imbue that picture with unique and compelling qualities.

    The first one is stunning. Love the colour and there is a nice calming smoothness to the photo.
