I couldn’t resist this one – this fellow stepped past me as I sat on the end of the wall at Newcastle Baths today. With surf board tucked neatly under his arm, he waded through the shallow water and over the rocks and stood waiting for the right moment, before jumping into the swirling surf. I liked this image as it again showed the diversity of this lovely coastline. Newcastle has always been a favourite surfing venue with its miles upon miles of coast line. Later we watched the tugs escort one of these coal ships, fully laden out of the harbour then turn around and escort an empty one back into the berth at the Coal Loader on Kooragang Island. For a rather overcast day, I liked the colours this shot produced.
