Inside looking out

Inside a sea cave looking out towards the Mahon Rockpool at Maroubra (Sydney's south eastern suburbs). This cave is inaccessible when the tide is high. The sun had by now escaped the clouds and can be seen just above the cave entrance. Spot the birdie. Blend of two exposures, one for the outside, one for the inside.

Imagination

It was still dark when I got to South Curl Curl Rockpool yesterday morning at first light. There were some great cloud shapes. Let's see how many you find - just limited by your imagination. I see a crocodile about to bite a dinosaur in the bum - the crocodile is just under the moon and the dinosaur is under Venus. In the "big window" in the clouds just right of mid-frame, there's a fat bear sitting on the toilet pot smoking (or is it some projectile vomit?) ;). As I said, just some fun with imagination!

The waves are on fire

At first light, there was a narrow strip of cloud at the horizon which soon became fiery red closer to sunrise. When the sun rose, it was behind that cloud strip but the red low light illuminated the splashes and tips of waves making it appear as if they were on fire! The sea also appeared more blue than normal. Collaroy Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches).

Straddling the line

This channel was about a metre higher than the sea level. (At high tide, of course, this intertidal zone is submerged). Whenever a wave was higher than that, it would rush up and into the channel. As I (and the tripod) was standing straddling the channel, I did have a few slightly anxious times where the rushing water rose rapidly to knee height and rushed past me. This long exposure shot was shot with a 10 stop ND filter and a CPL filter.

Bring things to a head

A view of Barrenjoey Head and Lighthouse (Sydney northern beaches), as seen from near Palm Beach Rockpool, across the water. Due to the heavy swell, rough seas and wind, the air was full of spray and the photograph was only possible with a CPL to minimise the light scatter. 99 sec long exposure with Nisi 2 stop ND + Lee 10 stop ND on a 200mm telephoto lens.

Beat a hasty retreat

Another cold and windy morning. This is an exposed spot, almost the northernmost point of Sydney (Palm Beach, Sydney Northern Beaches), and the cold wind bit when I got here at first light. I was on those rocks in the mid-fore-ground early but had to beat a hasty retreat as the big swell threatened to cut off my path back. Still, a good sunrise.

Another cold and windy morning. This is an exposed spot, almost the northernmost point of Sydney (Palm Beach, Sydney Northern Beaches), and the cold wind bit when I got here at first light. I was on those rocks in the mid-fore-ground early but had to beat a hasty retreat as the big swell threatened to cut off my path back. Still, a good sunrise.

Needing that warmth

Sunrise at Maroubra Beach in Sydney's south-east on a cold and windy morning. Unusual for Sydney but I would have been glad to have had a beanie and gloves that morning.

Craggy

Sandstone sea cliffs towering above North Curl Curl Rockpool (Sydney Northern Beaches). The shapes and patterns in the rock, formed due to erosion and wear, are quite fascinating. This is only the top of the cliff, photographed with a 105mm telephoto lens.

That's a plan

Sunrise at North Curl Curl (Sydney Northern Beaches). These 3 lads appeared to be photographing the big waves and then went climbing the cliff just beyond where they stood. The bare sandstone rocks of the cliff face have worn into fantastic and beautiful shapes.

Hope no one was rock fishing this morning

It was a cold windy morning, with temperatures just above 0C with windchill. With a swell of around 3.5m, and occasional waves of 5-6m, it was not a good morning for activities on the rocks. This shot at first light was the first I took this morning at North Curl Curl rockpool. At this spot it was OK but just after, I got on to those rocks on the left and went round the front. Though I was safely far away, the waves striking the rocks towered over me, and many reached as high as 15-18m, and spray was reaching where I was. Had to wipe down all my gear with a damp cloth after getting home.

No one else

Just before sunrise at Bungan Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches). It was a cold morning yesterday and when I got there, there was no one else I could see on the beach. The only living things I could see were two sea gulls, a whale far out to sea, and me.

Slash the sun

Panorama of 11 vertical frames, taken just after sunrise at Whale Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches), showing a 180 degree scene. It was a cloudy morning and was even raining when I got there at first light. The clouds cleared a bit as the sun rose but you can see that some particularly dense clouds were cutting off part of the sunlight, giving rise to that dramatic "slash" with golden illumination to the right and none to the left (just left of centre in the sky). Of course, you cannot miss the swathe of brilliant green weed on the rocks I was standing on (very gingerly, as it was so slippery).

It's all about the patterns

Panorama of 14 vertical frames, capturing a 180 degree view from the rocks at the southern end of Manly Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches). Manly Beach can be seen to extreme left and Shelly Beach/Headland to the right. Each vertical frame in the panorama is a blend of 2 frames, one exposed for the highlights and one for the shadows.

Despite the rain

It has been raining a lot these last few days and this morning was no exception. Quite a few of the initial photographs had to be taken with the camera and I both with waterproof covers. The rain did let up a bit later a little after sunrise. On the rocks at the southern end of Manly Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches).

Inside looking out

Inside a sea cave looking out towards the Mahon Rockpool at Maroubra (Sydney's south eastern suburbs). This cave is inaccessible when the tide is high. The sun had by now escaped the clouds and can be seen just above the cave entrance. Spot the birdie. Blend of two exposures, one for the outside, one for the inside.

Slice of orange

It was raining when I was driving to Mahon Rockpool in Maroubra (Sydney south-eastern suburbs) this morning and I thought it would be a washout. The rain stopped but clouds still obscured the sun. There was just a slice of orange to show that the sun was there somewhere. 3 frame panorama.

Long and wide

Long exposure of a sun-less cloudy morning at Avalon Beach (Sydney Northern Beaches).

This was my 2nd attempt at trying a long exposure with the Laowa Venus Optics 12mm ultra-wide lens. With something that wide on a full-frame camera, it is a challenge anyway and at least some vignetting is inevitable. Mounting filters for a lens with such a bulbous front element needs special equipment anyway. On my first attempt I used the Laowa filter holder made for this lens and it was a disaster. Massive vignetting. Read that Nisi has made a filter holder for this lens so ordered it, and this is the result with the Lee Super Stopper ND filter. There was a little vignetting, which I have corrected, but I was able to get a long exposure with a lens this wide!

What's new? A PC, I thought...

Time for a bit of a whinge. Is a long post. Read it if you have the patience.

Haven't posted for a while. In fact, haven't been even looked at others' posts. Life got in the way.

First I got a brand new PC delivered. Dell. Windows 10 Pro. Nicely spec'ed. Spent 4 days setting it up. Transferred my Adobe Creative Cloud licenses to the new PC.

Came with 16GB RAM (2 x 8GB matched pair), wanted 32GB. Put in a support request to Dell asking for a quote for 16GB of memory. Was very explicit - 2 x 8GB matched pair, 2400Mhz, DDR4, unbuffered, non-ECC RAM. The start of my Dell troubles.

When I was about to start using the new PC for the first time, it went belly up, sort of. It got what people call the orange LED of death. Shut down properly the night before, and at next power up, the power LED blinks... more »

When I was about to start using the new PC for the first time, it went belly up, sort of. It got what people call the orange LED of death. Shut down properly the night before, and at next power up, the power LED blinks orange, top fan starts racing, and that's it. No bootup. Hard power off, try again, and sometimes it would work. Second support request to Dell, this time about the hardware problem.

Had to do my tax return for the last year so limped along with the blinking PC, which sort of worked, most of the time. Took a few days but got the tax done.

In the meantime, more Dell trouble. Don't know how they provide "service" because that's what they lack. They inexplicably closed the second support request and started logging the hardware problem activity against the first (which as you recall was for a quote for memory). And I still hadn't got the quote.

Perhaps they saw the memory quote and decided the hardware problem was the memory. So they organised to ship memory and a technician onsite to fix it. Here's the funny part (shows how much Dell support know their systems, NOT):

As I've said, the system comes with 2 x 8GB DIMMs, and the documentation was clear about that, but they decided it has 4 x 4GB and shipped that. I told them that won't do because I need to add 2 x 8GB more (there are 4 slots).

So they cancelled that and ordered 4 x 4GB again, but this time 2133Mhz (the system comes with 2400Mhz). So I told them they were wrong. So they cancelled that.

Then they ordered 2 x 8GB 2133Mhz. Wrong again. They cancelled that.

Then they decided that they don't use 8GB 2400Mhz (the system comes with that). Told them that. They started looking for it.

And shipped a single DIMM of 16GB. Told them that won't work - sent them an extract from their own service manual that the system needs matched pairs and 16GB means 2 x 8GB. OK, cancelled that too.

Then the next notification said 2 8GB 2133Mhz shipped again. Sigh

Confirmed that they would ship 2 x 8GB 2400Mhz, and a motherboard replacement. Looks like now it's also a motherboard problem...

And the technician turns up with only 1 x 8GB DIMM and a motherboard. Right. So how do you say which DIMM is faulty (if that)? Try both. Yup.

Turns out the motherboard he brought along is DOA. And the memory doesn't work. Now the system doesn't work. At all. No bootup, and the one time it went beyond POST, the operating system said "hardware fault" and rebooted. And orange LED of death. Terminal now. Won't come up at all.

Asked him to put back original motherboard and DIMMs. But the system has now carked it. Earlier it was intermittent and mostly worked. Now it is dead. Never works.

Technician said system needs to be replaced. I email support to say that they must replace it, and if they don't after all this stuffing me around, I would register a complaint to NSW Fair Trading against Dell.

Silence. 2 business days go by (they claim they answer within one business day) and I get a mail saying they have asked for approval for replacement. But approval is not certain as replacement is a big deal. Right. And even "if approved", will take 30 days for a replacement.

That was 2 days ago. I'm bracing for a replacement denial. And getting ready to lodge my complaint to Fair Trading.

And virtually every email from Dell support to me starts with "I understand how inconvenient this is and will be happy to assist you with it" and ends with "At Dell we strive to exceed expectations and provide the highest levels of service to customers". Yes, sure. What service? And if that's your "striving to exceed expectations", I shudder to think what "normal" would be.

And then I got the quote for the memory I'd asked for (after reminding them a zillion times). 4 times what it costs for good, branded memory.

Aaargh!___

Imagination

It was still dark when I got to South Curl Curl Rockpool yesterday morning at first light. There were some great cloud shapes. Let's see how many you find - just limited by your imagination. I see a crocodile about to bite a dinosaur in the bum - the crocodile is just under the moon and the dinosaur is under Venus. In the "big window" in the clouds just right of mid-frame, there's a fat bear sitting on the toilet pot smoking (or is it some projectile vomit?) ;). As I said, just some fun with imagination!
