Captured last weekend at Anchor Bay; this image depicts the location from the viewpoint of the pier, at the entrance to the inlet.

The sunset light dances gracefully along the inlet and catches the eye of the discerning photographer as the rustic Bollard settles down for the night ... a witness to so many hidden tales & adventures.

Shot very late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Wish you all a splendid week ahead.
Cheers Wink
Bert
