Artist's Description

It’s been a few years since I ventured to the Pinnacles, Phillip Island, Cape Woolamai.

I had forgotten the the few kms to get there, i only remembered the steep decent to get amongst the land that time forgot….

It really is a spectacular place to visit.

On Friday I had been to Number 16, what a beautiful morning I had, That night having to dry my boots with a mini heater must have shrunk them, riddled with blisters from boots that have well been broken in I struggled.

To be honest i wasn’t really in the mood to shoot, i was just happy watching the ocean, the crash of the waves, the way the water swells and dances around the rocks, the sound of the waves crashing…

After awhile i decided i should go and explore, after all my motivation.. this time i had a widey and I guess i was expecting more, better shots??? So i walked around to the left as far as I could go, sat there for awhile too.

I lost track of time, the ocean has a way of making time meaningless and every moment count.

As my battery started to die, i decided to pack up my gear and make my way back, I felt fatigued and wasn’t thinking, i put my phone in my back pocket, the same pocket that well lets just say my last phone went for a swim. I miss my iPhone 6!

Secretly I didn’t like going back to an IPhone 5, huh the law of attraction? Saving up for a new IPhone 6 I think…

The weight of my bag and tripod, seemed to throw me off balance and getting over the rocks became increasingly difficult, at times disorientated.

Getting up that hill was a bit of tight spot, feeling dizzy and lack of strength, my protein bar didn’t kick in, well I am glad i didn’t do this one alone which I often do, I love the silence and the scene, never feeling rushed, although my partner is pretty good and letting me be.

Well I am finally back home and this is the only image that I really like….Well maybe a few more…splashy ones.

Once back in the car feeling every muscle ache, a lot of water and the promise of that reward cider and a great meal at Tides in Tooradin, all was well again, don’t get me wrong I had a great day, the watching was just more important than the capture and a great place to be…..
P.S please let me know if you fine my phone ;-)
