    Perhaps a beach trip in mid/late May or early June is in order? Cape Woolamai, Cape Shank, Sorrento back beach?

    Sun will be lower in the sky, so some good B&W clouds could be had?

    Just a thought...

    Arghhh, actually that should have been 4 seconds, which is probably obvious anyway because it is mich brighter than the other shots posted on here.

    I second Cape Schank, went there as a child and it seemed like the world's roughest ocean pounded that rugged coastline.

    Cape Schank is 1 hour and 26 min away from Hawthorn, same as Noojee... so I know I can be there at 10am without having to get up too early on a weekend = tick.

    Interesting. Cape Schank has, among its little gems, Pulpit Rock, an offshore peak that is part of a submarine ridge. But picturing it with the menacing surf making a beeline for your spot on the rocks is the hard part. Would be interesting to get a suitable low tide and sunset pic, but like all things, that depends on the moon and the stars aligning. Bit of a walk from the surf club carpark to Cape Woolamai but more than made up for with dramatic ancient granite tors and beautiful rounded boulders, but it too is a risky place to perch with even calm days producing unpredictable waves and washes over the rocks. I'd go to either with my usual enthusiasm!

    Although this is a promo, it offers a short video of the area, including the lighthouse and Pulpit rock.

    June the 24th 2012, Tidal information for Melbourne.

    Sunrise 0737 hrs

    Sunset 1709 hrs

    Low tide at 1150hrs.

    Extrapolating the difference for the tide at Cape Schank doesn't matter, the water level will be reasonably low if we are there on that Sunday.

    The only other Sunday in June with a close low tide to high noon, is on the earlier long weekend.

    Mick.

    Time and tide waits for no one, they say.

    When will you be around, especially a low tide weekend?
