reflections

This is our seventh consecutive year at Byron Bay. Each year the beach is subtly different; sand moves from one place to another, rocks are exposed and covered, the dunes regress and reappear. This year the beach erosion is the worst we have seen, metres of sand dunes have been washed away. The stairs from the deck leading down to the beach have been battered and the dunes are no more, in their place a sandy cliff edge. Access to the beach is no longer possible at this spot. Despite the destruction it is still as beautiful as ever and for the surfing enthusiasts the waves continue to roll in, line after line.

And even when there is no 'sunset' to speak off there are reflections in the still water...
