I simply get blown away by this place every time I come here and tonight was no exception. The swell was huge and I dared not venture down the rocks any further as the waves would come so far in, was difficult keeping the filters clean and so many things to think about all at once but it came together quite nicely..

At Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia.

Photography for me is an outlet, a way I can express myself through images rather than words. I look at the subjects I shoot from every possible angle that I can imagine and with the right light, the vision in my head becomes a reality. My passion for it began after high school and over the past several years it has become my release, my way of seeing from a different perspective..

    Wow! I’ve spent a fair amount of time at Phillip Island but never seen a sight quite like this. I must explore more. Brilliant shot!
