Artist's Description

Over the Australia Day weekend I went sea kayaking with three of my mates down at Wilsons Promontory. This was our second sea kayak trip the first one being a slightly terrifying introduction when we ignorantly charged out through a big surf into a huge swell and found that we needed to face straight into it to avoid tipping over. We quickly decided the safest thing to do was to head straight out to an island 8km away. After three of the most strenuous and uneasy hours of my life we finally made it into the lee of this rarely visited island.

For this trip the idea was to do something far more conservative in the more sheltered Corner Inlet at the Prom. Unfortunately once again the weather was against us the weather report stating:

“Sat 24/1/09
Morning – Hazardous Conditions. Use Extreme Caution

Very windy with large choppy seas. Small craft advisory. Moderate short period waves.
Winds: W 22 – 30 knots
Seas: WSW 8 feet at 6 sec.”

Fully aware of these facts we set off anyway hoping for the best. Needless to say it was a very exciting trip and we covered the 12 km in under two hours being carried quickly by the combined forces of tide, wind and swell stopping in the lee of Granite Island for a break 3km from shore. We continued to Freshwater Cove for a late lunch then continued around White Dog Point and Entrance Point and down the coast towards Rabbit Island. Unfortunately by this late hour the tide had turned against us and we struggled against it for an hour next to Hunter Point making virtually no progress. Defeated we headed into shore and set up camp. The hour was late and as you can see the beach was exceptionally wide. Despite the beautiful light, amazing location and sand patterns I only managed to grab three hand held grab shots as I walked back across the beach between ferrying our heavy fully laden boats above the high tide mark before we set up camp and prepared dinner. These grab shots were some of my favorites of the trip.

Out of interest the days high winds were integral to making this shot there being no other way of blowing that much dry sand from further up the beach onto the recently exposed wet sand. Rabbit Island is just visible on the horizon.
