Ross Jones Rock Pool, Coogee

March 10, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Back to an early morning start and ocean pools. This time the Ross Jones Rock Pool at Coogee, I had researched this pool and was looking forward to photographing it at high tide, I set out early morning to coincide with a 1.64 metre high tide at sun rise. I should have also checked the swell,  arrived at 5am to crashing waves making finding a good position to take my shots from a bit difficult. With a bit of wading and waiting for the right moment perched myself on an elevated rock level with the pools to take some early shots, still fully dark but the lighting from the walkways behind me illuminated the pools. Winter or summer I am used to these ocean pools attracting swimmers, yet to find one without at least one hardy soul in for a early dip. Coogee however is crowded, swimmers, joggers, dog walkers and of course more photographers meant that I had to choose my moments. The swimmers are in nearly every shot albeit slowing fading away under the influence of a long exposure time, as sun rise approached the tide rose and the swell died down but the number of people increased, might try a high tide at late evening. My favourite shots were in the blue hour, the walkway lighting and the sun just below the horizon gave great light, very little left to do with these shots.
