Boogie Board Dreaming - Nobbys Beach Newcastle NSW by Bev Woodman

Boogie Board Dreaming - Nobbys Beach Newcastle NSW by 

509 Red Bubble views as of 29th December 2010

This young boogie boarder (now identified as Jake Jones) stands wistfully staring out to sea, measuring the small waves and rips at Nobby’s Beach in Newcastle NSW, and wondering at what spot and time he may decide to enter the water. A balmy, end of winter August day was oh so inviting for a few who decided to brave the still cool water on this iconic beach. Not too many years before his path would have been blocked by the giant Pasha Bulka Coal Ship that decided to come ashore during a fierce storm in June 2007.

This image was taken with the Nikon D90, 18-270 Tamron lens fully wound to 270 mm and hand held.

I love the challenge of capturing what I see, admire and love. To share it with you is an added bonus. Photography to me is recording history. Please explore my galleries and enjoy♥

    This is a gorgeous scene Bev – looks like this young man caught the outgoing tide – not the most promising time for boarding. But I love the soft blend of colors here and the dunes in the background. Great shot my friend.

  • Thanks as always Lianne for your welcome response. This past week the weather has been perfect, just coming out of winter and almost spring time – so many are eager to get back into the water and this was just one of them this day – actually its one of the boys in the other image.

    You`ve captured the moment really well Bev.

  • Thanks Paul – I thought this boy was going to leave the beach, but then he stopped and looked out to sea, surveyed it all and then went back in again – maybe he just couldn’t leave this perfect afternoon!♥
