Eagle Bay Ripples (1X3C2271)
Ripples in the clean white sand of Eagle Bay, Dunsborough, South West, Western Australia.
This image was taken close to Eagle Bay near Dunsborough in Western Australia’s South West corner. A typically beautiful day, made a touch more interesting from a photography point of view due to some clouds on the horizon. Despite these, the sky was still a deep blue, the sands white and the rocks their characteristic orange colour.
I wanted to compose the image so that the ripples in the sand created by the wind featured in the foreground, so chose a vertical format to ensure I also captured the colour of the rocks and the endless deep blue sky.
Titled “Eagle Bay Ripples” to describe the sand ripples near Eagle Bay. Not very inventive I know… sorry.
The South West corner of Western Australia has many magical spots, with Eagle Bay, not far from Dunsborough a standout. Which is why I guess in the wooded hinterland behind it lies some of Western Australia’s most expensive holiday houses. The coastline is normally calm with clear water and white sandy beaches, separated by orange coloured rocky outcrops and points. Protected by Cape Naturaliste from the relentless large ocean swells, it is in stark contrast to the other side of the cape, world famous for its large and powerful surf breaks.
