Four seasons in one day

Well at least three seasons; started bitterly cold and gusty at 5am, then reached 27C, before a storm arrived late afternoon.

A couple of postcard images first:

This is at dawn looking east.

This is 3 images combined; a long exposure to smooth out the water, another for the sky and another for the foreground and rocks.

Looking west 5 minutes later.

And I think this one captures the scale of the cliffs as they recede in the distance, note the seagulls.

I was at the Bay of Islands when the storm arrived. Dramatic sky but I couldn’t get close enough to the cliff edge to put water in the foreground (damn those safety rails and my conscience) so the shot is a bit unbalanced towards the sky.

Bay of Islands, Voctoria

Wear thongs tomorrow…

…. because my shoes are full of the Southern Ocean.

Arrived at Port Campbell and the 12 Apostles this afternoon and I have 3 days to do something different from every other photographer that has been here before me. Not that I have googled it but I can imagine the many postcard images and some artistic ones as well I’m sure.

Perfect conditions on arrival – clear sky, light breeze – but then it is supposed to rain for the next few days. Should get something moody shots out of that. Anyway, here are this evening’s selects.

Fascinated by the light on the top of this cliff. Looking up at the cliffs and a wave caught my shoes from behind.

And the reflection of the sun as it dipped toward the horizon.

And then I walked further along the beach and there was a second ‘stack’ behind the other one!

Yes, it’s Redhead rocks all over.
