The Pinnacles, Phillip Island Cape Woolamai

Last weeks shoot.
I would never have believed that there such a dramatic landscape so close the Melbourne. I had visited some 20 years ago but had forgotten this location.

After two trips down the coastal track on mountain bikes I had around 300 frames to edit. Shot for HDR conversion I was attempting the “big” seascape type of shot with a big sky. Conditions were good but the sky was impressive for only a short time. I will work with the remaining images next week and eventually settle on a few for the production line and online shop.

Thanks to Marshall and Luie for accompanying me on the dark trip back after sunset.

  1. Amazing photography guys. and what a lucky timing with the sunset. not long ago was i at the pinnacles for a geography excursion, and i must say, i was begging to take my SLR down where these were taken. how did you guys manage such a climb to the bottom?

  2. Thanks Riley,
    Although not advisable, the climb to the bottom was not too bad at The Pinnacles. Climbing back up after the sun had set proved more of a challenge however.

  3. Great shots.
    You have inspired me.
    I was looking at going there myself but was unsure as to how difficult it was to get down the rocks & also how difficult it was to get back up in the dark.
    Also i was wondering how long it took to walk srom the Cape Woolamai car park?

  4. Worth doing the trip twice as I did.
    It takes long enough so you may get the time taken wrong if you are not too quick. I went by mountain bike and the return trip is then shortened considerably. Bit tough getting up some of the sand tracks to get there but still quicker. The climb down to the beach is straight forward but getting around on the beach will require some concentration. Just in case you break a leg I would recommend taking a friend.
    Good luck.

  5. Beautiful photography. My husband and I did this along the sandunes last summer. Pretty ordinary sky and only took shots from above. Is it possible to walk along the beach to the Pinnacles, if not where is it can we o climb down to take shots at ground/beach level?

  6. Not an easy location to get to at all, but definitely worth the trip. You have a couple of lovely shots on this post!

  7. Briliant stuff. I was there just last week. But the way you’ve captured it is even better than the real thing! Extraordinary work. I’m very jealous! Best regards, P. 🙂
