[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of many eastern water dragons seen along the bush track between Spit Bridge and Manly beach. Around 2/3 of this walk of about 9 km is through native bush. The track has been improved in recent years and is perhaps one of the best nature walks in Sydney.

Hi Murray, I would have to agree with you about the Spit to Manly walk. It was one of my favourites, or a close second to the Bondi to Bronte walk. The good thing about this walk was the beer at the end, in Manly, at the Bavarian Cafe.

Anyway, I like the positioning you have on this guy. This is a very tough environment to capture these guys with the light and shadows. In this capture you got him, complete with a nice capture of the eye, but it looks like you ran into a bit of trouble with over exposure of the highlights on the rock, and a bit of loss of detail in the shadows.

Thanks, John

Hi Murray, thanks for your welcome, good to see you here too. Wow the photography here is seriously good. I;ve been on that Manly to Spit walk and am impressed you'd find the energy to chase this fella round the bush. Nice catch! Great use of vertical to emphasise his long body and tail. Have a great evening, Lisa
