I cannot stress enough that you HAVE to view this LARGE

The main rock feature in this group stood about 15 metres high so you can imagine the power of this swell hitting the rock face, exploding 25 metre into the air..time after time…relentless..

It was such a beautiful day, only a gentle breeze, the ocean seemed so calm but as each rolling swell hit the edge of the reef it rose up and with an enormous thud…smacked into the rocks….stunning…!!

Appreciating and capturing light is the cornerstone to my photography. combine this with the beauty of our Western Australian beaches and rocky coastline and you have something that should be both witnessed, captured and shared.

I hope I can inspire you to take the time to see a sunrise or sunset, on a coast or a rocky outcrop somewhere, and then maybe you can understand why for me, Photography has become a passion……
