Nobby's Breakwall Surfer - Newcastle NSW Australia by 


I found the perfect spot today to capture the many surfers and body boarders at Nobby’s in Newcastle NSW Australia. This shot was taken beyond Nobby’s Lighthouse on the breakwall and I had a pick of the surfers in the ocean and in the harbour. This fellow was enjoying the gentle but ample swell that was constantly forming in the harbour and many of my shots made it appear that I was zooming in on top of them riding the waves … well I guess I was. This surfer put on a great performance for me and I would be more than happy to give him a copy of my images if he was to make contact.

This image was taken on the 15th January 2011 with the Nikon D90, Tamron 18-270 mm lens @ 220 mm, F6.3, 1/160, ISO 320, 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♥

    I thought it strange that he would be wearing a neck to knee suit in summer, but I remember a couple of weekends ago I went for a dip near Bundeena on a day with an air temperature of about 30 degrees but the water temperature must have been under 15 degrees. Unbelievable. Nice action shot Bev.

  • I noted that all the surfers were wearing these so they must have needed them. I guess when you’re out there for as long as they are you probably do. I couldn’t believe my luck with this one and I have others too but this is the pick … thanks Michael♥

    excellent shot Bev, his body and arm and hand positions suggest he’s somewhat of a newb which rarely get this kind of photo coverage.

  • Not sure he was a newb as he didn’t miss a trick and looked the part … it may have been his style … he certainly was enjoying himself … thanks for the comment♥

    Well shot!!! I particularly like the light coming through the wave… Its not easy to get that. Right location, right light, right time, well done :)

  • Thanks Susie … it was the right spot and time. I was about half way out on the back wall and could check on both sides for surfers although the river had the best ones♥
