I’ve started going through photos I’ve taken of scenery as I’ve found PicMonkey’s editing suite is heaps better than Photoshop’s tools. It’s faster, gives better results and is easy to manage.
So firstly, here are photos I took of Scotts Head Beach, about 20 minutes from where I lived slightly inland from the Pacific Ocean on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. It would have to be one of my very favourite places of all those I’ve visited.
Scotts Head Beach is a beautiful, unspoiled bay with fantastic views over to the other side of the bay and the small town of Nambucca Heads, where the Nambucca River flows into the Pacific Ocean. It has a small row of shops where you could buy beach gear or enjoy a meal, depending on what you fancied and how much you wanted to spend.
We used to visit this beach often as the views were lovely, it had long expanses of beach, and we used to simply enjoy watching the sea, surf and, of course, surfers.
At one stage we got storms and heavy tides which eroded a lot of the beach and caused sand drifts which covered a lot of the rocks that were there when we first moved to Bowraville.
One of the other big bonuses was to watch wedge-tailed and sea eagles floating on the thermals and moving gracefully along the shore as the high winds helped these magnificent birds soar along, as they covered quite big distances, seemingly without any effort.
So, without further ado, and with a big fanfare, I give you: Scottshead Beach!
