Even the sun's wary of the angry sea

Not an ideal morning for photography today at Bronte Beach in Sydney's eastern suburbs. It was heavily overcast and very soon started raining. The sea was exceptionally angry and pounded the shore so I couldn't photograph anything at ground level as the waves were way above my head. Even at this point around 6 metres above ground level, I was constantly doused by sea spray and had to keep wiping my lens. Was soon feeling sticky and salt-laden! The sun didn't make an appearance but a golden glow appeared as shown here some time after scheduled sunrise.

First light or sunrise - is there a difference?

I expected something like this today because the prediction was for a cloudy morning with possible showers. Was at the northern end of Newport Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) at first light. However, didn't expect first light to look exactly like sunrise. The cloud cover close to the horizon was so dense that the sun didn't appear until quite some time after scheduled sunrise. This is what it looked like at the scheduled sunrise time.

A beach to myself

A panoramic view of Bungan Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) with Bungan Head to the left and Mona Vale Head to the right. This was at sunrise but I had the beach almost to myself (two other photographers there), perhaps because a large number of Sydney beaches were closed that day due to dangerous and rough weather conditions. 3 frame panorama with a 14mm UWA Samyang lens.

The sunrise that wasn't

Got to Bungan Beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches area at first light (which is an exercise in itself, literally, as you have to walk down a very long steep slope to get there) but the sun declared no-show. So no sunrise. Still, got to test out my new 24-70mm lens. Lots of clouds and rain today.

Hello Sunday Morning

Surprising number of people about, considering the sun hadn't risen yet. Some brilliant colours in between first light and sunrise at the rockpool at Mona Vale Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches). The colours were even better just a few minutes before this as I was making my way down there. Low tide, as you can see, with the rock shelf fully exposed.

In the sea but not

A panoramic shot showing the Mahon Rockpool in Maroubra in Sydney's south-east. A large number of Sydney's beaches have seawater rockpools like this, created out of natural rockpools and often filled and refreshed by the waves. They provide a safe place to swim but occasionally sea creatures do find their way into them, including the odd shark.

Watch the slow flow

Watching the water flow over and through the rocks just off the southern end of Whale Beach in Sydney's Northern Beaches area a little after sunrise.

Too late for tourists

A view at night of the Prinsengracht canal in Amsterdam. This long exposure was taken while standing next to the Anne Frank House, with the Tulip museum just across the canal.

Have many photographs from our Europe holiday early last year that I had not processed. Decided to chip away at that now...

Hints of pink

This was the moment the sun was supposed to rise but as can be seen here, all that is visible is hints of pink in the very overcast sky. The sea was ominously dark and rough with massive waves pummelling the rocks below me. You can see the rain bucketing down in the far distance at the horizon - it was raining where I was too (at Bronte Beach, Sydney eastern suburbs).

Even the sun's wary of the angry sea

Not an ideal morning for photography today at Bronte Beach in Sydney's eastern suburbs. It was heavily overcast and very soon started raining. The sea was exceptionally angry and pounded the shore so I couldn't photograph anything at ground level as the waves were way above my head. Even at this point around 6 metres above ground level, I was constantly doused by sea spray and had to keep wiping my lens. Was soon feeling sticky and salt-laden! The sun didn't make an appearance but a golden glow appeared as shown here some time after scheduled sunrise.

Hiding in plain sight

This Floury Baker (Aleeta curvicosta) cicada appeared to have deliberately chosen this table-cloth to land on when it was inside our house. It does blend in quite well. I decreased clarity and sharpness of the background slightly and increased the same for the cicada itself to make it stand out a little in this photograph. You can see how it got its name - the white sprinkled all over it does look like flour. Photographed with 3 speedlights; 13 frame focus stack

Velcro grip

This cicada came and landed on my shirt so I walked indoors to photograph it. Slipped a piece of paper under it once I had it off my shirt. Discovered that it had a velcro-like grip on my shirt and had to very gently use the edge of the paper to get it to slowly relinquish its grip. Was very cooperative once on the paper and allowed me to shoot a focus stack sequence without moving much. Got a high-key type shot with 3 speedlights. 8 frame focus stack.

Update: I think this one is a Floury Baker (Aleeta curvicosta).

Fore!

Part of the Coast Golf Club at Little Bay (south-east Sydney) is atop the cliffs and stretch almost to the tip of the headland. This is an 8 frame panorama and contains quite some detail which can be seen by zooming in, such as the golfers near top left, a lone fisherman bottom right, many more fishermen near him to the left, another lone fisherman near the water below the golfers on the left, and some golfers next to the net near top right.

The way to start a day

This was the scene that greeted me when I got to Little Bay (south-east Sydney) just after first light today. The sun had not risen yet and for a very short time, the sky put on a beautiful colourful display. 3 frame panorama.

The way to start a day

This was the scene that greeted me when I got to Little Bay (south-east Sydney) just after first light today. The sun had not risen yet and for a very short time, the sky put on a beautiful colourful display. 3 frame panorama.

Can't walk around now

Looking south after sunset and just before last light at Turimetta Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) on Christmas day. The tide was rising and the rock shelf where I was a little while ago was now submerged. At low tide, one can walk in the intertidal zone around the headland to the rockpool at North Narrabeen, but not at this time.

Silent night

The rare occurrence of a full moon on Christmas day. This was taken at Turimetta Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches) soon after moonrise. The moon kept hiding behind the dense cloud cover and yet it was bright enough to illuminate the entire scene - this beach has no other lights. Wasn't exactly a great night for photography here - the clouds, it was raining, and high tide. I was perched on this rock shelf and I had water on all sides and washing over the rock - not dangerously but another thing to watch out for.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west (but this is not it)

The colours of sunset are also seen when looking to the east. Sunset on Christmas day at Turimetta Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches).

Where there's fire, the sun will follow

(Best viewed full screen). Before sunrise at the southern end of Avalon Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches). Not quite evident here but there was quite a swell. When I got there, I placed my backpack where I thought it was high and dry and started setting up my gear. Of course, right after that there was a big wave that came right up and some seawater got into the bag. Had to scramble and dry off things. 4 frame panorama.

Deadly

Rock fishing has been identified as Australia's deadliest "sport", yet fishermen often go out alone, can't swim, don't wear life jackets yet acknowledge that a large wave sweeping them off their feet could result in death.
