Tropical Oasis by DrewHopper Tropical Oasis by DrewHopper
Magical new location I found whilst exploring the headlands of Emerald Beach, NSW Australia. This cave cuts right through the headland and out the other side. This photo doesn't exactly do it justice, however I plan on going back when the tides low and the lights right. I'm hoping for a sunrise if the tide decides to cooperate with me...

DrewHopper Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2011  Professional Photographer
Coming from all directions here. The opening behind me mainly which bounces off the walls reflecting the clear water. The light spilling in from the hole you can see is coming from the Eastern side of the cave which cuts right through to the other side of the headland.

Beautiful, I love all of the unique colors. What kind of crystals do you think were in the rock to create it to reflect that way?

Very interesting shot Drew! Love it! Where did the unique colors come from? Natural phenomenon?

DrewHopper Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011  Professional Photographer
The light spilling through the entrance you can see in this photo is natural sunlight reflected off the caves walls and the clear water. The sea spray has also helped create the colourful rainbow like colours shining through, and the blue water is 100% natural as the sunlight shines from behind me and bounces off the inside of the caves walls which were greenish blue in colour... It's hard to believe though hey :)
