Little Bay

This is the bay near where I photograph all the kangaroos. It really is a 'little' bay, but it's perfect for children and beyond the rocks in the centre, adults also surf. The people in the photo are looking at a big sea eagle perched high on a rock. It entertained us by swooping into the sea every now and then, catching a fish, and flying away to stash it in its nest (presumably). Then it would return to this perch and look for the next one. This is one of my favourite coastal places nearby; I love the cragginess of the rocks and the pandanus palms growing on the cliff faces and, of course, the hundreds of kangaroos.
What a gorgeous place. Beautiful composition Robin. Terrific shot.

Love the colors and composition of this! Wish I could be there to explore!!

I can understand how this can be a favorite place to visit. It's just gorgeous with so much to see. Lucky you!

What a place to have a picnic and rest

Looks like my sort of place. Not too crowded, shelter and plenty to photograph!

Helene, this view is so gorgeous. I can't even imagine what it must be like to be able to sit and listen to the ocean, and to get to see Kangaroos jumping around. It might be a "little bay", but it is mighty in what it offers.

Gorgeous!

Really pretty looking place... and a fantastic photo.

Robin, often the small images fail to display your photos' full effects. I'm glad you lure me in with text so that I click to enlarge. This one is another crisp, clear, beauty.

Love the crags & the wonderful golden sand. Curious about your sea eagles. Wonderful pic!

Thanks everyone for your comments. @petersonsheri Sheri, you'll have to come on down for a visit; sounds like you would find it a real treat. @ldpaul Thanks Linda. Yes, I find the same with most others' photos, so always click to enlarge. Also, if you only view and comment on the thumbnail, it doesn't register as a view in the stats. Another reason to click, I think. @molizard Thanks, as always. A great pic. of a white-bellied sea eagle at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picturegalleries/earth/2551872/Sea-eagles-mid-air-fight.html Also info. about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-bellied_Sea_Eagle

That is one beautiful place...great shot!

p.s. a definite must see!

Oh, I didn't know that about the stats, Robin. I have a surface level understanding of this website. Have never really devoted the time to understanding the underpinnings.
posted December 27th, 2010  
Looks like a place I have only seen in movies!
posted December 27th, 2010  
Another awesome scene/photo Robin.
posted December 27th, 2010  
@ldpaul I only pick up this sort of thing by going to the Discuss heading from time-to-time to see what people are talking about. Don't get very involved myself but some of it's interesting.

Another beautiful seascape. Thanks for you kind words about Daisy. Jordan does love her and if he could would swoop her away from my niece. ;-)
posted December 27th, 2010  
Looks like somewhere I'd love to visit.
posted December 27th, 2010  
wow!
posted December 27th, 2010  
oh my, looking at your pictures SOOOO makes me want to get on a plane and head straight for Australia. Is that basaltic lava on the cliffs there? So pretty!
posted December 27th, 2010  
@pixelchix Heather, yes, they are basalt rocks. The best basalt rocks you'll get in Australia are in the southwest of Western Australia; simply beautiful. Come on down anytime!
posted December 27th, 2010  
Wow! So absolutely gorgeous, Robin!
posted December 27th, 2010  
That's a great location and a wonderful picture. A future holiday location I'll have to add to my list :)

@girlie Very impressive bird! 6ft wing span! Those are some awesome shots of midair action. I'm still in search of our eagles, preferably somewhere other than the zoo.

This is beautiful, it's like a perfect little secret cove.
