That's for those people coming fom NZ by foot. :-)

@MadScientist: yes indeed!! :)
Yes, it clearly ends here. You wnated to do some shopping ? ;-)

@zOOm: thanks Florence!! and yes -- for some goggles!!! :) there are gorgeous fish out in that water!! it is a marine park!!
A wonderful shot, I could do with a bit of sun and sand atm. Cold, grey, windy and wet here :(
19 May 2009 9:38am
@MaryB: yes me too -- although it has been nice in NYC... a little trip to Oz would be LOVELY right now...!

@grouser: hehe -- i wouldn't have it any other way mate!! :)
Love the curves. Do men have to be very Manly when they swim there and parade their muscles on the beach? Easier for some than others!

@MrsAmber: lol -- no they don't -- though they often are!! :P
I trust this is not the entrance to the undersea tunnel? :) Seriously though, really like the way the curves work together here.

@Yvonne S.: thanks Yvonne!!!

@hugo poon: cheers mate!! did you make it to Sydney on your holiday? if not you have to do it next time for SURE!!! :)
I guess that is the end of the line. Interesting scene. Love the graceful curves.

I love that children's book! Great image, as usual Jaycee! :) Oh and do i get bonus points for seeing the horseback rider. ( well, at least I hope its one?)
19 May 2009 3:48pm
@Ken: hehe -- thanks Ken! no -- i think it is just a person standing by the rails... but i like your imagination -- and to be truthful, i HAVE seen people ride horses down that path before at least once!! :)
Looks more like a boat launch. But those boats would be up for some serious damage by the boulders and lake of a "breakwater." Love the colors and good use of "thirds" here.
19 May 2009 3:54pm
@Steven: cheers mate!! this is a public kayak / life guard rescue launch for small motorized rescue boats!! :)
I guess you would have to be manly to keep walking.
19 May 2009 4:11pm
@Michael Rawluk: hehe -- lol, well since it is used mostly by lifeguards and kayakers -- i guess so -- though that wouldn't be a pre-requisite!!! :)
That's a dead end road for sure, but instead of a wall there is the freedom...
19 May 2009 4:13pm
@Nicolas: yes indeed!! and the water is wonderfully refreshing!!! :)
Nice neat image! i like the way you composed the picture with the curved road
19 May 2009 4:35pm
Terrific photograph. Marvelous composition, detail and processing.
19 May 2009 4:49pm
@john4jack: cheers mate!! :)
i'd just keep walking until i hit the water! you around for a drink tomorrow? i'm off to boston for the weekend but am free tonight or tomorrow. let me know!
19 May 2009 5:40pm
@peter: sorry about tonight -- didn't do my replies til this evening as i was interviewing today!! let's shoot for next week? we need to meet up!! :)
love the photo (and the title)!
19 May 2009 5:42pm
I would get the urge to skateboard into the water, nice one.
19 May 2009 5:52pm
@Richard_Irwin: hehe -- it certainly has been done before by friends of mine -- looked fun!! :) cheers Richard!!
Fantastic composition. Good one
19 May 2009 7:21pm

Beautiful ocean. Lovely composition.
19 May 2009 11:09pm
@Steve Rice: welcome back! hope the holiday was wonderful -- can't wait to see the pics!! ;)
Short sighted and with a bottle of Jack Daniels inside.... who cares where the road leads :-0
20 May 2009 12:07am
@observing: hehe!! :) cheers Mike -- this spot is called 'the wall' ad it is a great swimming spot in the day / or drinking spot in the evening!!
Lovely composition... the eyes are being lead into the ocean... very cool
20 May 2009 12:38am
@Ivar: cheers Ivar!! :)

Une plage déserte, le rêve !

@missparis: merci a toi Veronique!!! yes -- it is lovely indeed! :)
The slight curve in the walkway leading to the ocean is so inviting...the blue of the water is stunning. Lovely image!
20 May 2009 12:56pm
@bluechameleon: thanks BC!!! wait til you feel how lovely the water is -- you will run right for it!!! :)
Fabulous shot! Great composition and perfect exposure! Well done!
20 May 2009 4:42pm
@Magda: thanks Magda!! :)
I like how it just ends like that. Kinda incorporating the pedestrian and the city lifestyle right into the ocean :)
21 May 2009 1:06am
@Howard F.: hehe -- yes, lol. australia is part civilization, part ocean... one just slides wonderfully into the other!!! :) cheers!!
