Murrays Beach is located in the Booderee National Park in Jervis Bay. It's an amazing location, the beaches and the marine environment are pristine. The island in the distance on the left is Bowen Island which is home to a large colony of Little Penguins.

In the 1960s the Australian government gave serious thought to placing a nuclear power station right here on this very beach. The project was cancelled in 1971 after site works (excavation and levelling) were done and a road was constructed to the territory border. The levelled site is now the car park for Murrays Beach and its adjacent boat ramp.

This photo was taken in mid-winter.

Lovely transparency and coloring of the water! I admire your pic called "The Charge," too. Have these ever been offered as desktop wallpapers? (I have a weakness for waterscapes.) :)

Thank-you kindly. No these were never turned into wallpapers. Not ruling it out though :)

Wow this is an amazing shot! Really love how you're basically level with the top of the ocean, giving you the chance to see into the crystal clear water where the wave hasn't broken yet! Really gorgeous shot!

Fab! Just love that color of the water. And so much better than a nuclear power plant!
