The Witch Widjirriejuggi and the fate of the 3 brothers of the Birpai tribe

North Brother, the European name (by Captain Cook) for the hill in the distance and the place where one of the Dreamtime legend Birpai tribe brothers rests.

Like the Napoleon advertisement, its a crime not to prime view large 🙂

It was a bit wild and woolley out this evening – look carefully and you can see the lightning in two places on the right of the image – don't ask how i stitched a image and got two lighting bolts 😉 its a long story 😉 6 landscape orientation images stitched.

Sometimes its worthwhile braving the elements for a shot and this was one such time, although i and others have questioned my sanity here considering the hill (north brother) in the distance did get fried by lightning 🙂 and I was considering heading up there for sunset 🙂

Sharks Teeth

My thoughts go out to Zac and his mates/family who was mortally injured the other day in a shark attack just north of Coffs Harbour – way to young too die. Rest in peace buddy.

Thus, the image, a horizon that reminded me of the mouth of a shark, even more appropriate given Zac was body boarding at the time of the shark attack.

Chris Anderson and his 1000 broken boards graveyard.

Spare a few minutes to check out his project and see the history of collecting and arranging the boards. Well done mate, you got more patience than I.

Triptych Illusion

The view you can see here is that looking south on Botany bay, each image has the background as it appears in 'real life' , ie on the left, the entrance to Botany bay, the middle looking toward Kurnell (with a bit missing:) but hey, thats my artistic license) and on the right, Sans Souci. However the foreground is a different view on the same distinctive rock, each from a different side.
Clear as mud?

As always, view large, there is very little point looking at the thumbnail..where's the fun in that?

Approaching from the left

Its amazing to see the surf at work, slowly but surely moving the sand around and dislodging the rocks.

This particular rock is to the right of what is commonly known as the "elevator" on the southern end of Maroubra Beach, the " elevator" is a guaranteed fast moving rip which all the locals use as a speedy entry into the surf.

Disproportional Light

Timing and water movement can make the difference between a ok shot and a shot that is dynamic and has depth and form.

Seascape imagery involves quite a bit of waiting to get the right sized wave in the right position – this image was the first of several using the seaweed as a nice little prop, however I was not ready or setup for it, i merely plonked the tripod down knowing full well a nicely positioned wave was coming and did not have time to adjust the graduated filter or anything else for that matter. hence the overly dark headland and water, but on a positive note, i got the horizon bang on 🙂

Inspired by +Jay Patel and his recent bubbles image, thanks for the inspiration mate.

Joined on the morning by the fong man and rudy Rod. (+Cameron Fong & +Rodney Campbell ) Thanks for the company.

The world underneath

Bradley's Head Marine Nav-Aid

What I love about sunrise is that you are never gonna know were the colour is gonna turn up (if at all) and when it does, all you can do is just make do with what angle, POV, or feature you can. I would have loved to be in another position to take more advantage of the sweet colours, but alas, this sliver of Sydney Harbour has to suffice.
