Moody Merewether

Merewether Ocean Baths, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia

Rain and storms had been over Newcastle for much of the afternoon and as evening set in, the gloomy winter weather persisted. The conditions however, allowed me to capture one of the many moods of these iconic local baths. Just after this photo, one local was brave enough to jump in for a swim despite the chilly and choppy conditions.

Opened in 1935, Merewether Baths have a long history as a popular Newcastle swimming spot.
