I decided to get up early and get to North Narrabeen Pool again. I photographed it a fortnight ago and there wasn’t much a sunrise so I hoped that the some little clouds that I spotted at 5am will provide enough colour for possibly beautiful sunrise. Wrong! This morning definitely wasn’t designed for a photography. When I arrived to my destination, which is by the way only 15 min from my work (and almost an hour from home), I was met by a gail wind from the see with a speed of probably around 40 km/h and gusts up to 60km/h or more! (I checked the web later)
The pool looked like this.
It was high tide as well, the waves were crashing onto the pool and roared themselves across and over the sidewalk!
At first I tried to hide myself and the camera from the wind behind that rock wall but there were not much of a view. So later I climbed up and perched myself on that cliff, almost away from the wind and with a high view on the pool, hoping that the wind will slow down, or I will see sun rising regardless of the wind. I battled the wind, and a sea spray, and took few shots.
I noticed few locals coming for their usual morning swim. Today all but one turned away!
Yes, today wasn’t very good for a photography. Nor for the Lee filters. Being large and rectangular they make very good flying objects! As a result I need to place a new order for a filter and process a number of photos.
Thank you for looking!
