Wollongong Beach

By younchin
I took this photo on a bright afternoon. The place is called Wollongong city beach about 200km south of Sydney. I'm surprised that the beach was not as crowded on such a lovely warm spring day.
Technically or as least lens-wise, I assumed this would be the time of day with ideal lighting for a lens at f/3.5 speed. There were a light haze in the distance not as heavy as other occassions, but enough to blur the low clouds and distant mountain range a fair bit. I'm wondering if a faster lens at f/2.8 would be of some help in capturing a bit more shades and details.
Thank you for viewing, apprecaite all comments and suggestions. I hope you like it.

The vantage point of your exposure Simon was excellent for bringing out the golden sands and the contrasting the white of the waves breaking.

Looks like the kind of place I would like to visit! Very sunny - not like the rain we have over here in England!
Well done!
