Images of a Big Island

Hill Inlet- Whitsundays


It seems like ages since I posted any images of the beautiful Whitsunday Islands which unfortunately I don’t get out to very often these days! This is an image of Hill Inlet which is at the Northern end of Whitehaven Beach. I shot this quite a while ago and it is one of my favourites of this magnificent place!

As you can see, it’s quite a low tide  which was not ideal for the great aqua shades you get in the water when the tide is higher. You can see some of it on the left of the image, but what attracted me was this Hoop Pine sapling growing out of a cleft in the rock and despite the odds doing quite nicely! Not a bad place to put down roots!

  1. Hey Tim. As always a great shot. I’m guessing its pretty hard to go wrong in a place like this! I like that the seaweed also forms a bit of a leading line into the distance as well providing a bit of depth.

    • Thanks Jamie, i did toy with removing the weed line but came to the same conclusion. Cheers!

  2. Beautiful. As you say, it’s a shame about the tide but we have to work with what we’ve got. I also agree that leaving the weed in is a god idea.
