The path here actually leads to a breakwater that protects the estuary of Tallebudgerra Creek. The beach sand can be seen in the foreground.
I took this shot right into the afternoon sun with my little Fuji F30 compact camera. There was sea mist in the air but I added some diffuse glow in processing.
I would have liked the composition better if the woman near the center was a little more to the left. Alas my timing was slightly late :-/
I think I'll upload this one for the Photo Friday 'softness' theme.
