A sunset taken looking over Tuggerah Lake from Long Jetty. This was the last shot for the day as it was actually quite dark. With a 2 second exposure it is amazing just how much information the camera can record.

I like long exposures also and the milky smoothness it gives to the water. Nice image.

Thanks, Susan. The 2 seconds did smooth out that water.

Great shot, what on earth do they use a jetty of that length for, sorry it's just the way my mind works.

Thanks for your comments. The lake is quite shallow near the shore line and the jetty is that length to get out to deeper water. In days gone by boats used to come to these jetties but now they are mainly used by fishermen. The next jetty north of here is even longer.

This is the jetty to which I referred above:




The Long Jetty at Long Jetty.
This is the jetty from which the suburb of Long Jetty gets its name. The jetty is 1152 feet [351 metres] long. It was washed away in the Easter floods in 1927 and was immediately rebuilt.
