lightly cropped only….

just to give some scale

…yesterday a massive 4m swell rolled in from the southern ocean, easterly, dangerous for the fishermens’ boats moored safely in the bay…so many people watching along the coastline…all day…then this morning, some sun, and in between showers i got out to see….this wave is only being riden with tow ins a must, on an out going tide this morning, this was a sight to behold….without expounding too much, if you look at the scale here, this is a monster wave….off the coast of our beautiful little town in tassie….

this was shot at 500mm from roughly the same spot, on a calmer day

…light plays with form,
in the matrix of mystery,
exploring the interplay,
as it happens – wherever I am…

that’s it – peace | love
