1 0 M I N S

I think I broke a record today for most amount for photos taken in 10 mins. Yep, I filled a 16 gig card in 10 mins whilst swimming. Never done that before. The sky was bursting with colour around 6:30am (but just for 10 mins). We’re having such a good run with morning hues lately…I […]

1st light

Not a bad week to be running around the beaches with a camera. Some decent moments worth capturing. This morning’s focus is on the sunrise, which splurged colour across our skies around 6:30am. There are waves as well, smaller than yesterday and still coming from a ESE direction. North winds all day, making it clean, […]

Living Colour

A really nice morning without surf. Plenty of colour over The Buckler around 6:40am. As forecasted, the swell is tiny and gathering around your knee caps. Forget surfing. It’s also going to rain later today, so enjoy the winter sun right now. Waves will be bigger tomorrow from a new choppy ENE swell. I suspect […]

24 karat

It all kicked off today with a gold-plated morning around 7:10am. The clouds broke open for a brief moment and the bay was flooded with 24 karat rays. Quite the spectacle. This time of year the light is clean, crisp and gold – my favourite. The sun rises over the Ben Buckler when in its […]

Look what I woke up to this morning, real pretty eh? Was thinking the other day we haven’t had a decent splash of colour across the bay in some time. Months in fact. Well this morning was a cracker but you had to be up REAL early for it. Like 5:45am and she only lasted […]

Light

Today and tomorrow are the smallest days of this week. It may even be completely flat tomorrow and was barely breaking at sunrise today. The highlight of the morning was the spectacular sunrise. Gold. A perfect setup… thin cloud strewn across Bondi from Ben Buckler…then a small gap along the horizon illuminating the curtain from […]

Scarce

The swell arrived but so did the wind (and a bit of rain). Slim pickings out there morning. A choppy 3 foot bump poked up every now and then at South Bondi. Barely anyone out – or even on the beach for that matter. The winds should back off from 20 knots back to 10 […]

Level

This freezing, howling wind has blown all the swell out to sea by the looks of it. Bondi at 6:10am didn’t even break – Lake Bondi. However, by 8:00am I saw a ‘wave’ every 15 minutes…then at 9:10am there’s a little something to sample – 1 to 2 foot, breaking nice on the left. Could […]

All Time

Ok ok, the surf’s not ‘all time’ but everything else this morning was working quite nicely. Let’s begin with the colour spray sunrise at 6:00am above Ben Buckler. One of its finest. Thin cloud lit up like a bomb fire…then how about the water…it’s 24 degrees and warmer in than out. No wetties required…spend hours […]
