Western-port Bay Grantville – Tooradin Victoria December 17th 2013

Old Jetties and Abandoned ships...I have for a long time wanted to photograph the old Jetties in Western-port Bay  near the town of Grantville. Arrived not long after Dawn at Queensferry Jetty firstly, and after getting stuck in the mud and nearly losing one of my gum-boots at low tide, I moved further around the coast a little to Tenby Point. Both old Jetties are really good photographic material and I will endeavour to re-visit again, maybe doing a sunset next time I visit. On the way back to Melbourne I had arranged to meet my friend Gordon who is the chief Pilot for Aus-air at Tooradin. Armed with a hefty step-ladder we headed over to the abandoned old freighter ship lying forlorn in the mangroves by the runway. More great photographic material here and I have worked some of the images in HDR as I feel this subject lends itself to this medium rather well.
