Cape Leeuwin Augusta

Sandy Cove Cape Leeuwin Augusta Western Australia is available as a 16×20 inch photograph and larger.

Cape Leeuwin Augusta is a rocky granite promontory renowned for the location of the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. This rocky finger that points into the ocean is seldom without wind or swell. There are tiny partially sheltered coves complete with their own miniature  beaches. Their sand varies from coarse yellow granules to sand interspersed with finely ground shell grit. I believe the colour of the sand is this particular cove is partly due to mineral carried by ground water leaching out into the area. In the foreground a spring water swirl can be seen, its flow originating from beneath the sand. The film was 4×5 velvia, no colour filtration, 90mm Grandagon lens.
