Have been away on holidays and this photo was taken at The Gap. If you look closely, you’ll note the photographer perched on the edge of the rocks; she was taking photos of her surfing boyfriend.

    Amazing! She looks so small compared to the magnificent landscape

  • I tell you what Silvia, you wouldn’t catch me sitting where she was, that’s for sure! It’s a beautiful spot. :)

    By capturing the photographer in the corner you really get a good idea of how vast this area of rock meets ocean is! WOW! The photograph is stunning!

  • Thanks PG, glad you like the shot, I think having her there adds that extra human element and maybe shows the vulnerability of man with nature… :)

    Gorgeous!! So I have to ask – is that you on the rocks down there? I figured you might have set your timer and then scrambled on down there!

  • Ha ha! No Way is that me – that was some person taking photos of her boyfriend surfing. It’s a long way down there, I don’t know how she did it and no way would I perch myself on the edge where the waves could come at any time and sweep me away! Yikes! Like the sissy girl I am, I was way up high… :)
