|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a shot over the never-ending beach stretching South from Cape Byron - the most Easterly point of the Australian continent, on the New South Wales' far North Coast.|
Boasting rainforest, rugged cliff faces, stunning views of the hinterland and ocean, and outstanding vantage points for watching whales and dolphins from the headland, Cape Byron deserves its international reputation as one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The natural beauty is steeped in Aboriginal and European cultural and natural heritage. Aboriginal heritage is not a thing of the past. Members of the Arakwal clan, who are the Aboriginal custodians of the Byron Bay area, take an active role in preserving traditional sites and retaining cultural values.
This shot was taken early/mid morning in spring, so the colours are already somewhat de-saturated due to quite strong sunlight.
