It was a pristine November day in Anglesea, on the Surf Coast of Victoria; the temperature was mild and the sky an intense blue.

I was beach-hopping from Point Roadknight to Anglesea main beach, but it wasn’t until I detoured into the shadows of the cliffs lining this part of the shore that I noticed the sky reflecting in water left by the receding tide.

It’s somewhat of a cliché to mention the light in Australia, but it’s not until you have been to other parts of the world that you realise how true it is.

The second lot of photos were taken in and around Anglesea a few days earlier.
