A tiny glimpse of sun, around 7:05am

Flotsam

I hope you got a surf in this morning, before the onshore. It was on the cook! My shots may not reflect what I saw, as I spent a lot of the morning dodging rainstorms (or waiting for light), but there are some good times out there. Unfortunately, around 10:30 am, the southerly has come […]

The Sydney Opera house this morning

Megalopolis

I’m a beach guy, so what am I doing in the big smoke? Lost? Haha. Yep, today is all in reverse as I woke in the city, watching the pinks blaze over the Sydney Opera House. What a cracker morning to be in Sydney – warm, windless, rainless and very good looking. Sydney’s an awesome […]

Bronte Pool, into the sunrise

Harvest

There’s fruit on the trees, and finally, the onshores have subsided. The sunshine has come back, and it’s one helluva day outside. Let’s party. It’s easily 4 foot, and from the South, so Bondi is milky every bit of energy from the ocean. It’s too big for beginners and other flotsam jetsam. For the frothers, […]

A new take on a very well trodden Bondi icon

Vicissitude

Vi-sis-i-tood = regular change. Very unpredictable weather as we continue on our La Nina journey. It was gloriously sunny for one moment, raining on me the next. It’s had to plan ahead at the moment…washing in, out? 16 knots of smotherly is wreaking havoc on our beaches. Bondi has shoulder high mush rolling in. There’s […]

South Bondi, early rocks

Postcard Tones

What another one? Yeah, that’s right… the third morning this week with postcard tones at sunrise Bondi. That’s rare. Let’s put it this way, I’ve been doing this now for 22 years (ok, a week shy of 22 years)…and I’ve seen more sunrises than a crusty Mykonos DJ. To get three bangers in a week […]

Bash! South Bondaka

Dunk!@#

It was one of those fine, Sydney, summery mornings. A doozy…a windless, warm, salubrious morning for a dunk in the ocean. I hope you got down there. It was worth it. Waves. Oh yeah, it’s breaking. Enormous crowd fighting over any scrap though. Waves are in the 2-foot, sometimes 3-foot range. The 9am high tide […]

Bondi in full bloom this morning - next level!

Bloomtown

Mornings like these are a pleasure to document through my photography. Everything looked good this morning, so I just had to point N shoot in all directions. First up, the sunrise bloomed into a deep-sky of pinks—a real rare crazy morning. It stopped people in their tracks. It was so intensely pink; I’ve even toned […]

Bondi Icebergs, since 1922

24 Hours

Today’s images span the past 24 hours around Bondi Beach. We’ve had a cracker beach day yesterday and a much cooler, yet aesthetically pleasing (brief) sunrise today. Last night some waves from the ENE were kicked up, but the onshore flow from the SSE was spoiling the fun at sunrise. A few guys were out […]

Oh boy, wanna be inside that thing

30°C

We’re set for a brilliantly sunny, warm, spring day as we head towards 30 degrees. It’s so nice outside, enjoy it, as winds will be stronger later and a chance of a thunderstorm tonight. The water was cold. It’s always cool after days of northerlies. We’ve got a NE swell in town, I didn’t see […]

We've come thru the other side - but will there be a second wave?

Friday Swims

Swimming with my camera is one of my favourite angles, as I’m a part of the action – very invigorating! Not many forms of photography allow you to be up so close and involved, ducking under curly lips, together, with my subjects. The banks are pretty awful for surfing (closeouts), but they’re super shallow, putting […]

Birds flying south, Maroubra

Drive-Thru

A special kind of morning with an abundance of sunshine, gentle offshores and a small chugging nor-east swell. I decided to roam the local neighbourhood, looking for untrodden territory for Aquabumps. I found myself loitering around the Coogee – Maroubra region. Like Bondi, Coogee’s coastal walks were choccas as the WFH revolution continues. Nobody seems […]

An explosion of colour hovering over North Bondi this morning

Detonation

This morning was an explosion of colour over Bondi Beach. Bright hues glowed from the North as we entered the first day of winter. The colours were so strong, it looked unreal. (I even pulled them back in post). It’s also the 1st day of regional travel, as our COVID19 grip loosens. Loads of people […]

On your marks

Home Sweet Home

I know, you’re sick of being home and want your old life back. We all do, you’re not alone. What a great time to learn something new! Every day I am trying to learn a new skill, mainly through Youtube. Just google anything, and I bet there’s a “How to…” video on it. Learn the […]
