As I took in the surroundings, the harsh brutality of living on Phillip Island's coastline struck me. Beneath stunning sunsets and pretty water is a daily struggle for existence.

These were taken on a Fuji XT2 with a very old Pentax Takumar 300mm f/4 lens mounted with the assistance of a mount adapter. It's all manual focus and the lens technology was not what it is today. However, photos out of this old lens have a unique look and charm.
