Golden Curves, earlier this morning

Wild Ochre

A nice and neat little morning down the beach. Clear skies are inviting the solar warmth as Bondi hosts waist-high dribblers. The beach was quiet, real quiet, and relaxing this morning. Superb colours from the sun beams. My fave. The water temp. hovers around the 19-degree mark with perfect clarity. Sound good? Dive in, and […]

D-az, lefts, Bondi, standard

Elusive 🐋

We had a few whales in the bay this morning. I had my whale repellant cameras out, so I have virtually no photographic proof of the visit. I swear, every time I try and shoot images of whales or dolphins – they disappear into the deep abyss – they know I’m onto ’em. I’ll do better […]

Subtle hues of this morning before the rain

Polar Blast

Sydney is being blasted by polar air, oh boy it’s cold today (max 11). We’re not used to the claws of winter digging deep, so early. It’s snowing in the highlands. You’ve probably heard that Bondi Beach Primary was on fire last night at 5 pm. Thankfully it was after school hours and no one […]

Crazy skies, Bondi

Tranquil

Where is everyone? Bondi was a ghost town this morning. It was very tranquil. The Bergs, the line up and the beach was totally empty. It’s waveless too! Interesting skies, no, not the burning reds of yesterday – that sunrise broke the internet…just different. It’s a cold day, 12 now, feels like 9, max 13. […]

About as intense as the colours can get at Bondi. June 8, 2021 6:45am

Intenso

Put your sunnies on to look at this post; it’s intense! I even knocked back some of the colours as they melted my camera sensors. It’s was pretty incredible. Worth getting up early for… The colour bloom lasted longer than usual – 20 minutes, enough time for you to sip ya coffee and pull your […]

The Pilg, slicing the open face

Aero

Welcome to a new week and the beginning of winter. It was a cold, clear morning down at Bondi with small, weak limping waist to chest high waves (inconsistent). We’re looking at sunny weather for today and tomorrow, rain from Wednesday. The water is still kinda warm hovering around 19.5 degrees. I’ve finally gone to […]

Water play, Bondi Beach 6:45am

Radiator

The shortest day of the year in the southern hemisphere is June 21, a few weeks away. That means the sunrise is late at this time of year. I sit on the beach on these cold mornings, waiting for the sun to peer over Ben Buckler, illuminating my subjects and, most importantly, making it comfortable […]

Longboarders heaven, Bondi 7am

Routine

I’m back in Bondi and into my morning routine – surf check at dawn, shoot a sunrise, capture some surfing and then shoot something weird going on in Bondi! Done, tick! Where has all the swell gone? I’ve been watching from Queensland, and you have had one helluva run down here (Goldie was on the […]

I bet you didn't know this was 1 hr drive from Snapper

Tamborine

Surf Snapper in the morning, have a rinse off under a waterfall in the Goldie Hinterland afterwards. I bet you didn’t know that just up the hill from The Gold Coast there are mountains full of rainforest delights. I didn’t… It’s so lush up here, around Tamborine. Much cooler weather than the coast. The forest […]
