    Real Name:
    Clovelly is a really sweet spot in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. A tiny beach with an ocean fed swimming pool and a narrow bay with a protected entrance which has sides built up like a natural swimming pool. I am not going to give you any photos of that - it is what everyone takes.

    Instead, these are from the headland at the Northern end of the bay. This is a "natural" rock pool. I think it has actually been cleared out to make a toddler's play pool, it is quite small at around 12' in diameter and typically with only around a 1' or so of water. Note the approaching storm. This shot was taken with an Olympus E-P1 and an Olympus 9-18mm zoom.

    Just a little to the North, a popular spot for fishing. This guy was reeling in some pretty decent fish one after the other. He's just caught another and he spent a lot more time walking to his bucket to store his fish than he took to catch them. This shot used the Panasonic 45-200mm zoom.
