Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island – Seascape Photography


Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island - Seascape Photography

Ever since moving over to Victoria in January I’ve been meaning to get out and shoot some new coastline. On Saturday I finally got around to it with a trip down to Cape Woolamai off the south eastern tip of Phillip Island.  Weather conditions were ideal with some lovely light peaking through the pinnacles lighting the scene nicely. It was a fun outing with quite a few seascape and long exposure photographs captured which I hope to share with you over the coming weeks.


This photograph was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40 and Cokin Z-Pro .9 neutral density filter.

    Nice work Alex. I was shooting at exactly the same location a few weeks ago. It’s a great spot, but a bugger to climb down to with a bag of gear. Nice use of foreground leading into the breaking wave. Cheers – John

      Thanks John! Did you get many good photos?

      We had more issues climbing back up with the mutton birds in full season. Probably saw at least a thousand down there. It was amazing but also rather intimidating as we climbed back up in the dark as they screeched at us.

    Hi Alex, Many good photos? Nah…weather was shocking, so I wound up with a lot of spray on the lens ruining quite a few shots which otherwise might have been OK. The few that I did get were “acceptable” from a learning perspective only. And I did learn a lot from the experience. Next time I head down to the island, I will be far better prepared. Cheers – John
