Moods of The Bay n Basin Region NSW Australia

The neigbouring Jervis Bay and St Georges Basin region of NSW is just 2 hours south of Sydney and is known locally as "The Bay and Basin."
As a photographer it provides landscapes of pristine waterways and famous beaches of pure white sand, It is also surrounded by National and Marine Parks so capturing a large variety of native Australian marine and wildlife is a common bonus.
This list of photos concentrates on the moods of the Bay and Basin from glorious sunsets to chilly sleepy mornings, summer fun in the water, to the large and powerful swells generated by the formation of east coast storms.

The fun bit is that you get to decide the order of the photos in the list by liking or adding a emoji to photos that you like the most, comments are welcomed. This particular list is a closed list but I will soon be creating other lists where you will be able to contribute your own photos to the list.
So get to it, but don't forget the theme of the list is Moods of the Bay and Basin

There is always something happening at Murrays Beach Boat Ramp, as the closest boat ramp to the ocean, there are keen fishermen coming and going at strange hours of the day and night, and those without boats try their luck by fishing for Blackfish around the seawall
