Mahon Tidal Pool, Sydney, is always busy with lots of swimmers, surfers, and photographers. Rock formation here is second to none and it makes this spot very attractive, especially on a high tides. In general, most places in the ocean have two low tides and two high tides a day. The high tides here can be up to 1.5 - 2 metres and its flow is very fast and powerful. I usually experienced its beauty on a high tide morning, except this time!

The weather forecast of last Monday was 50% scattering rains, 70% cloud coverage, and 0.6 low tide. We decided to visit Mahon as an expectation of unseen rock formation. Low tides uncovered such a beautiful rocks fulfilling with Lichen and moss. In this shot, I handheld the camera about 1 foot above the ground. Taking the photo at 1/4s., f11.0., iso 800, I turned on the Image stabilisation (IS) on in order to reduce image blurring.

Note: Lee Soft GND 0.6 was used in this shot.
