In memory of the Breitling Wing Walker Jane Wicker who died in June this year

Even the mildest aircraft incident could result in death for a wing walker, let alone any type of crash.

These women make it look easy, but very few spectators appreciate the danger they put themselves in every flight, two hats off to ya ladies.

This image was taken early this year at Avalon Airshow.

yep, definitely Monday again, that means monochrome madness and a military Monday ;)

Blending the sweet lines of the F22, this thing has more curves than Mariah Carey.

the hardest thing is deciding whether to shoot from the rear or the side :) or even just smack front on.

The smooth side of Maroubra

I was searching for a monochrome image that I had in my head this morning, this was as close to it as i could get – what I really wanted was a super minimalist BW seascape, oh well will have to go out again, dang ;)

Nature vs The city

3 shot Panorama image – Northern end of Maroubra Beach

Beachside apartment living :) on occasions when the cloud is in the right spot on the horizon you can get some very nice, often very subtle, pink rays as the sun pokes it's way through, this was one such occasion.

Maroubra, whilst having a somewhat rough reputation is still one of the few eastern suburb where you can park for free :)

Dark times ahead

I missed the good flow here, there was some nice waves coming in but my patience was low and sure enough the moment i walked away the perfect wave turned up. Next time.

Mind Bender

View large, its crime to only look at thumbnails :)

Glebe Foreshore, there are some really nice foreshore parks and public spaces around Rozelle Bay, this particular one is a favourite for dog walks and kids parties – what a great mix :)

There is also a old school slippery dip, one with rollers, its like going down a conveyor belt, how someone has not yet sued the council i do not know ! :)

Unexpected

Even in the most built up areas, where there are rock walls and concrete barriers, it's still amazing to see a bit of greenery just strike a blow for freedom from the oppression of the city.

Go you good thing :)

Riding the icy wave

…chased by the white wash. Not the best surf position, nor composition, however the back light on the wave really caught my eye.

Some locals at Maroubra enjoying the decent swell at the southern end of the beach.
