Emerald Beach is just south of Woolgoolga and about 15 minutes north of Coffs Harbour. It’s a quieter atmosphere than some of the other beaches along the Coffs Coast. The beach is safe for swimmers, or walk around the Look At Me Now Headland loop, spotting some kangaroos along the way.
Emerald Beach is very popular for surfers too, boasting an excellent beach break, along with a southern left-hand reef break. You can even walk your dog on a lead north of Fiddamans Creek and south of Diggers Head.
I took a series of seascape images of the surrounds from the top of the Look at Me Now Headland, Emerald Beach, mostly showing the horizon with the more typical compositions showing the horizon. I then did a few flights over the beach with the camera pointing down, looking for some points of interest and surf formations. While the wave formations were interesting and deep in colour, what made this shot was the group of people strolling across the sand. Being late in the afternoon the shadows were long, adding to the impact. I took over thirty images and decided to use this one because of how the walkers were placed in the frame and in relationship to one another.
