Surfs up

I am never surprised now to see surfers at the strangest locations, rest assured if there is a wave to be had, its guaranteed that some surfer will sniff it out!

As I was walking out onto Cape Banks I noticed the swell was pretty favorable on Cruwee Cove, which probably does not happen that often since its relatively sheltered from the open ocean, then sure enough the little dots bobby up and down in the whitewash were there…shark food?

That was not the only sight I saw, silly me thought there would not be many people out here on a Monday night :), so on I walked and past, one model shoot on the cliff top, one engagement shoot (i assume), one wedding couple next to the old shipwreck and finally a bunch of enthusiast photographers 🙂 Definitely not the quiet stroll i was thinking of 🙂

Anyway's, out here on the gateway to Botany bay the waves were pumping, after setting myself up on a very large (and high) rock I was surprised to find that the rock I was standing on vibrated quite a bit when the waves smashed it at the base… after which I found another rock to rest my ass on, one which did not shudder everytime a wave came thru!

2 shot pano, it was meant to be a 3 or 4 shot one, but the poor old stitching algorithm in PS struggled with all that white water 🙂
