Native Pigface Wilson Head Denmark.

Native Pigface Wilson Head Denmark Australia.  Wilson Head is just out of town from Denmark on the Ocean Beach road. I arrived in the afternoon at this stunning headland during a drizzly period of light rain.  There was no wind, just the gentle fall of misty rain. As a result the coastal heath was soaked.

One of the effects of dull or overcast conditions on film is that colours appear more saturated. Wet objects also take on deeper colours. Another factor is the film itself as to how colour is recorded.

This small headland just out of town is popular with the locals for fishing, surfing and is a controversial site for a new wind farm. I have always been struck by the relative density and diversity of plant communities growing within the small sheltered coves around Wilson Head. The area would appear every bit as dense and diverse as coast found further east in national parks.

Native Pigface Wilson Head Ocean Beach Denmark Australia is available as a photographic print. It was first published in the large format 1998 Horizon Calendar and as a greeting card. It remains one of my personal favourites.
