2012 Photo of the Day Series – Careful, No one’s watching

Did you know that this ocean pool is the last remaining women’s-only seawater pool in Australia and has been in continuous use since its establishment.

This is McIvers Baths.

The pool was built in 1886 and the McIver family managed it until 1922 when it then was acquired by the council.

This image is part of my series on the ocean baths of Sydney.

On this particular morning there was literally not a cloud in the sky and I wondered how I could make the perspective interesting.

I looked at the pool from all different angles and finally settled on this. The light reflected at the far edge of the pool provides a distinct separation of the pool profile from the ocean just beyond.

There’s just the faintest shadow of the rocks hidden below the surface of the pool water.

This is a 15s exposure @ F22.
