Zig Zag, Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Size Guide


Tucked away off the coast on Western Port Bay is this little groyne. It took me ages to find. It's not visible on Google Earth so I took a punt that it may be somewhere I've been before. I love exploring finding new locations. I like the idea that I'm the first person to photograph a landscape. Of course, this is not always true, if ever, but I'm always looking to make something my own.
In this case, I had a vision of this weathered groyne withstanding the elements after all these years. I wanted the water to wash over the groyne, showing that whilst the water comes and goes, the groyne remains defiant. To illustrate this, I got there very early one winter's morning. I needed a high tide with a moody sky, so I waited for the right weather. I needed the tide to be high for the water to wash over. I planted my tripod firmly in the soft sand as the wind blew and the waves crashed in from the south. The wind was cold — typical for this time of year on the Peninsula.
Using a dark piece of glass, known as a neutral density filter, I restricted the amount of light entering the camera lens to have a very slow shutter speed to blur the water the way I wanted. When it came to process all the files, I chose a black and white treatment to contrast the groyne against the surrounding landscape.
