I went to the sand dunes at the north of Cronulla beach for this photoshoot. It is a beautiful area with a lot of history. It is the landing site of Captain James Cook in 1770. Back then, the area was covered with vegetation which was later cleared and burnt. Throughout the 1900s, over 70 million tonnes of sand was mined away. There are now a few remnants of the original vast sand dunes. There has been much debate about development in the area because of its historical significance. I sure hope that the area is preserved. It is a beautiful stretch of land and there is no other place like it in Sydney.
Taking these photos was difficult in the heat especially with a black turban and black tights on. But I felt so calm and strangely at home on the sand slopes. I really felt like I was in the middle of the desert. My outfit made me feel like a mix between a desert princess and a desert bandit. A girl who has escaped to the sandy plains and now wandering the desert alone. I am in love with the first photo where, out of pure luck, we managed to capture a crow flying behind me.
All my photos so far have been in various locations around Sydney. It is quite amazing how much variety and interesting places there are here. I’ve been so busy working and doing actuarial exams that I have not been out of Sydney in 2 years. But hopefully I will jet off on a holiday soon and post up pictures from exotic locations.
