The Tessellated Pavements at Eaglehawk Neck is a great location to work on your seascape photography. It’s orientation to the east makes it great for sunrise photos, and the lines, cracks and rocks all along the foreshore are a photographer’s dream come true for making interesting and unique compositions.
For me sunrise photography is more accurately pre-sunrise photography. I am not usually as interested in the sunrise itself, but instead aim to be in location one hour or so before the sun pops up to capture the magnificent pre dawn colour. An added bonus is the long exposure needed in the pre-dawn twilight results in beautifully smooth water. Gumboots or crocs are a must as standing in the flowing water can result in interesting patterns from the water as the waves rush to and from your point of view.
Visiting Eaglehawk Neck and the Tasman Peninsula
Eaglehawk Neck is only an hour out of Hobart, and there is accommodation right across the road from the Tessellated Pavements. Enjoy your visit to this spectacular location! Other attractions in the area include the Blowhole and Devils Kitchen, which are located out past Doo Town. The Tasman Peninsula is also home to some stunning half to full day walks such as Cape Hauy and Cape Raoul, and the historic Port Arthur site.
