Looking for the perfect wave

Norah Head

Norah head is a spot where I have seen on the map and wanted to check out, its also a popular spot for photography and you can see why, it was pretty freakin' cold here on this morning and I had just swung by to take a look, basically some reccy for a future trip :)
The great news is that there is a nice cafe right here on the beach and its a very popular spot for surfing.. i even saw one dude heading out with no wetsuit.. balls of steel i think :)

If you in the area be sure to check it out, its really accessible and the rocks are right next to the carpark.. this particular image was taken with a favourite old lens of mine, the nikkor 135mm f2.8, super compact, manual focus and very sharp.

out front: no filters, just a nice wave and a cool lighthouse.

Swans

During the hustle and bustle of a weekend away with a bunch of kids and friends, i did a sneaky sunset session by the lake at Wyong, no time for tripods, all handheld and needed to get back for dinner, marshmallows and more chaotic kids :)

Its a really lovely little lake and the sunset was pretty with pinks, pastels and a perfectly timed pair of swans sailing on by.
Its a 4 shot panorama, handheld

No Trains today

cause its a bit wet out there

I do like this spot, its always busy with keen bean photographers and tourists but it's still enjoyable, even now with standing room for about 3 people ;)
you really need to see this place when there is no water there to gain an understanding of how much water this is -hence in the below links you can see it with some water and with no water…

Capturing images in the wet is challenging, made more so when its actually pouring down with rain and blowing a gale, even with an umbrella and all the wet weather stuff for teh camera, which by the way consists of a ziplock bag and a rubber band, its a painful process of trying to keep the spray off the, here's gerrys tip of the day, when shooting crazy ass waterfalls in the wet, choose a lens that has the biggest lens hood on it :)
