Took this 5 shot panorama from a viewing platform over looking the Coffin Bay national Park which is located at the Southernmost tip of the Eyre Peninsular - a lovely area - desolate and unspoiled. The second shot shows a typically busy South Australian beach just east of Point Avoid in the Coffin bay National Park. ;)

Neat pano - I thought our prairies were flat. What about the hills in the distance? What are they and how far away might they be?

Interesting beach shot. It appears to be fenced off. Is there a reason for this? You have some neat place names - Point Avoid and Coffin Bay. There must be some history behind these - care to elaborate?

Thanks Guys, The hills you can on the horizon are about 50 Km away, they are not mountains rather big hills and the land you can see is basically sand dunes covered with the scrub you can see, the whole area is a huge national park with one road in and out (legally that is), the road, now sealed follows the old Yangie trail which was a very rough track and leads to point Avoid which I guess was named because of the high cliffs and severe rocky coastline, a death trap for small ships - huge seas happen here due to the convergence of the Indian Ocean and The Southern Ocean. Its also is breeding territory for White Pointer Sharks - They are BIG around this area- A guy was killed there not long ago. The Beach shot with the fence is just a parking area and to keep you away from crumbling cliff edges, there are tracks down to most of the beaches but you are most definitely on your own - no rescue services nearby and very patchy phone reception. Coffin Bay is named after the 1st Officer on board Matthew Flinders boat when the bay was first discovered so nothing really ominous in the name - its a beautiful small fishing town, famous for its Oysters. In all this whole area is a very beautiful part of Australia but we dont tell people about it so it keeps the crowds away :D - Ive posted a couple of other shots both take from the Point Avoid area - hope you enjoy them :D
Cheers Paul

Tickling my fancy there Paul. Never get sick of the rugged SA coastline. Nicely done.

Re: Pauls 52 Week 33

Postby pah43 » Thu Oct 15, 2015 6:31 am

Not been a good week or so, been battling side effects of prescription drugs, heaps of hot weather and a trip into hospital day surgery for minor repairs so not felt like going out with the camera, BUT ive taken a lot while I was away a couple of weeks ago so this weeks effort is all about the post processing of those shots, this particular shot is at Sleaford Bay (again !) and is one I have selected to enter in the open class in our clubs monthly competition. Hopefully now Im feeling somewhat less drugged and butchered I will get out and take shots for next week.

Cheers,
Paul.

I managed t get the camera out this week- early morning trip up to Port Augusta (next town north) with my son - went to drive his car back so he could pick up his new shiny Mazda 3 after he finishes work. Of course it was a grey dull day - no sign of the nice weather we have been having lately. I didnt go far it was pretty futile but here are 3 that I did take.

This the Yellow Throated Miner bird (according to my wife's book on birds) - was hard to get - zipping everywhere (?)

The mural on the bridge is dedicated to the late Mayor of Port Augusta - Joy Baluch - quite a character in her time!

This old ship aint going anywhere any time soon - especially at high tide!
