Bondi 6:43am light dance


This morning went down a little something like this.

The wind woke me up, southerly storm hit overnight and I could see choppy water out the back. I prayed for waves.

Light was dancing behind broken morning cloud as I rolled down hill half asleep. I took a few snaps, some mega slow shutters, some just out the car window as I drove past.

I saw a couple of dudes out at Bondi – I waited 30 minutes for them to get a wave and saw nothing of interest.

Moved onto Bronte seeking some protection from the wind. Same, 2 dudes out, waited 30 minutes and one guy got a set – went straight (pictured) and then went in looking a little dissatisfied.

There are waves in the 2-3 foot vicinity but the 20 knot sou-easterly isn’t making things pretty.

Hey – Slam’s beach volleyball festival is on again this summer and it’s time to enter a team.

Ok – winds are much better tomorrow…bye for now, :: uge

Bronte 7am The only wave I saw a human on this morning

  1. Hey Uge – can you start putting the time (or an approximate) back on your posts? Its always nice to know what time these things are a-happening. You have the time on the first photo in today’s post, but none of the others… I know, small thing to whinge about it, but such small whinges get up when everything else is perfecto!

    1. Hi Tam, thanks for the feedback – for 12 years I’ve pretty much shot at the same time 7am Bondi so I’ve gone easy on the writing that on all 7 images.

      1. No worries. I guess I’m just interested in seeing how the time of year impacts on the light at different times – I love it that just a few weeks ago it was pitch black at 6.20am, now its full light. But I’m just being an annoying nerd 😉 Keep up your good work, absolutely love it.

  2. ‘light patches on the beach’ has an interesting high contrast spectrum thing goin on giving it a European feel to the light. Noice.

  3. oh another thing – left field nerdy thig – for the next few days at around 11PM look up high to the NE and check out the massive bright star. It aint a star. It’s Jupiter. Grab a pair of binocs and you can even see a few of its moons hanging around it. Chuck a massive lens on Uge and we might even see some detail on that swirly crazy stormy planet
