Life on the Edge

a pastel window into the world below and the world up on the cliffs
View large or go home 😉
The pod of whales (and the elusive seals which I only heard but never saw) did not hang around to complete the panoramic scene 😉

Just about every time I have visited Kurnell and and walked along these cliffs I have spotted a whale or two, maybe its just that I only come here in the winter months 🙂 nonetheless, if you are in sydney, Kurnell is a great spot to whale watch, not only is the actual clifftop scenery awesome the whales typically come quite close to the cliffs, as they did this morning, close enough that I could hear there blow holes going, rest assured its along way down too.

Still in the forefront of my mind was the French guy (Fabien Ardoin)
who fell to his death a few weeks back whilst taking a photo in the Royal National Park (south of here), always a timely reminder to take care near heights, particularly the very crumbly sandstone that Sydney is built on. RIP buddy.

I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed and always appreciate the time people take to have a look, plus and/or comment.

  1. Looks so different to the pano I took only minutes later mate (after the sun had come up over the horizon) – no lovely layers of mauve/purple and blue pastels but rather layers of orange/red/yellow and blue and bright orange light on the rock face
