Square Perspectives Photo Challenge ~ Australian Landscapes #9
Destination: Tomaree Head, Shoal Bay, New South Wales
The sign said it was only a two kilometre walk, but it looked a long way up to the summit of Tomaree Head.
At first the track was easy going,
but soon the gentle incline was replaced by steps up to a cantilevered walkway leading through the trees and around the edge of the hill.
At the top our efforts were rewarded with expansive coastal views to the north and south.
Heading back downhill, we left the summit walk and turned onto another path. It led us up again to the Fort Tomaree gun emplacements, part of Australia’s coastal defences during the Second World War.
The guns were removed a long time ago, but the structures which housed them have been left behind.
It was easy to see why Tomaree Head was chosen as a strategic site. The views were spectacular.
While our travel plans are on hold I’m joining in every day with Becky’s July Square Perspectives Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme of perspective. My posts represent the definition of perspective as a vista – seeing something over distance or time. Also joining Jo’s Monday Walks.
