When I was at Turimetta Beach yesterday I had to leave earlier than I wanted as I was out of batteries for my camera. The sky and light was just beautiful and the water was calm.
I went back up today as I was wanting to defy the weather to try and get that same feeling. Today was a completely different matter with literally gale force winds and salt spray off the water.

While these photos may look calm, they are a lie. I couldn’t let go of my tripod and had to keep cleaning the salt water off my lens to get these photos. This isn’t water idly flowing over rocks like yesterday, I had to run down between waves and try to get a frame or two before quickly getting out of the way of the next big swell.

Perhaps I should have just gone down to manly and photographed the boats washed up in the storm, perhaps I will leave that for tomorrow.

This image is part of my personal photo per day project.
To see the rest of my images go to
Canon 5dmkII EF 17-40 f4.0L

The aim is to take 1 photo a day and publish it on

This would be a huge undertaking for most people, but even more so for me. For the last 2 years I have suffered from chronic fatigue (cfs, me, cfids, etc) and while I am far better than I have been, some days I know I won’t be able to get out of bed, many more I won’t leave the apartment

I hope this will assist in my recovery by forcing me out on days when I can manage it, and keeping me creative on days that I can
