Pinnacles at Phillip Island

Jan 02, 2014

Went to Phillip Island to photograph the Pinnacles, another place on my list. It was great to take a long drive and have some time to think and listen to some great music at dangerously loud levels. The weather was very average on the way there so I was thinking it would be a terrible photo shoot. I followed a guide on how to get there from The guide was 100% accurate and it would’ve been hard to find this spot without the help of this guide. Getting down to the bottom was the hardest bit but once you are down there you are glad you made the effort.
When I got there I did a bit of exploring. The entire area is beautiful and it is well worth coming early to see as much as you can. I also got to see a baby seal enjoying itself by sunning on the rocks. The weather had remained not that great until the sun had fully gone down when the magic started. It wasn’t a great sunset till after the sun had disappeared and the clouds started to catch fire. There were a couple of other photographers there but it was mostly quiet. After taking these shots I started to head back when thousands and thousands of birds started flying overhead. All the people there were in awe. I’d never seen so many in my entire life. It was like something out of a movie. I saw many wallabies as well on the way back. This is a spot I highly recommend that everyone visit if you have the fitness/agility to get down that last slope at the end.
