Kilcarnup magic

The afternoon I first saw Kilcarnup beach was unforgettable. This is one of the prettiest beaches along the Cape to Cape trail. The day we came here the wind was dead calm, the tide was out and people were standing out on the reef 100m from shore. Around the headland are a series of small bays surrounded by limestone cliffs. One of the bays has several small limestone outcrops and on one their is an Osprey nest. Apparently they nest each year, and the young hatch around October. They seem to build up the nest each year and it is now a massive size.

Access to the beach is by 4WD only, or by walking from the mouth of the Margaret River (not possible in winter), or by walking in from the north.

    Thanks Larissa. The conditions that day were very, very special – not just for photography. The color of the weed in the foreground makes a good contrast.
