La Perouse is a suburb in the south Eastern suburbs of Sydney with one of the most magical sunset and sunrise views in Sydney. I was there to practice my photography and here are some pictures I took… enjoy!
While standing on shore at the car park, I watched the cargo boats pulling in…
…to the oil refinery at Port Botany
Trying my hand at candid wedding photography.
Bare Island is the only island in Botany Bay and it’s also home to a historically significant fort that was built in 1885 to protect the area from an expected Russian invasion. A guided tour ($10) is available on Sundays. If you think that it looks familiar, you are right! Bare Island had been in Mission Impossible 2 with Tom Cruise.😜
On Bare Island, I took a walk around the cliff. There were many people taking pictures. The grounds are slippery in part, but some people seem to be able to walk and jump off the ledges in flip-flops! The landscape is pretty – the weathering of the rock has created a sort of alcove with striking strata of colours.
More dramatic sunset on its way – cotton pink clouds and golden orange cliffs…
…and the ‘blue hour’ is not to be missed.
La Perouse is also a great spot to watch the planes come in to land at Kingsford Smith Airport.
Task accomplished… then off to dinner at The Grounds, Alexandria.
