Lost highway - south to Bermagui

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 3 September 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Decades ago, a storm washed away this road near Bermagui on the South Coast. Long since closed to cars, nature has gradually reclaimed the asphalt. In this shot, you can see one of the few sections where the white lines down the middle of the road are still visible. Although an abandoned highway, it now serves as a walking and mountain bike trail.

In this view, I am looking south towards the seaside town of Bermagui. (An image I have previously posted - this new version processed with Color Efex Pro.)

Interesting choice of tilted framing with diagonal of the road. Lot of depth also.

The trees are taking over. Abandoned logging roads here get brush crowding in from both sides relatively quickly. I like your presentation.
