Avalon Beach, Sydney – NB35

Avalon beach is located 37km north of Sydney’s CBD. It is such an amazing beach featuring amazing surf breaks and a 25m salt water rock pool.

Out of all the Northern Beaches in Sydney to take a photo, Avalon Beach has to be one of my favourites. It is one of the most picturesque beaches, with such a dramatic rock shelf on the southern end, leading to a recognisable distinct headland on the northern end. There are so many compositions to be found here it is an absolute pleasure to shoot.

The other great thing is that when you arrive at Avalon beach, even though you are still in Sydney, you really feel like you have gone somewhere far away out of the city, to some remote seaside village where you can relax and recharge.

I photographed this image on New Years Day in 2018 and I remember turning up and wanting to shoot a different composition from where I would normally shoot. As the tide was low I headed out on the rock shelf on the south end of the beach looking for a composition. Lucky for me the sunrise wasn’t dramatic as it took me a while to find a spot to shoot. I stumbled across this composition after the sun had risen, but it was perfect timing as the clouds coloured up from the rising sun, as well as casting a beautiful glow on the headland in the distance.

I took another image that morning which is one of my favourite images. Click here to take a look at it.
