C'mon kids, let's go... get out of the water!
One more wave...
That's what it was like this today. PERFECT!
Seb & I shot sunrise from land.. it was odd one. A bunch clouds hovered over the horizon, so naturally we thought we would have to wait to catch the sun. Nope, the sun somehow came up in front of the clouds.. an optical illusion of sorts. It rose ever so quickly up into the sky but strangely it looked muted - as if it had a diffuser placed in front. This softness wouldn't last, by 6:30 it was crazy bright.
Swim #1 - Not long after sunrise we jumped into the surf in the middle of a tide change.. lots of water rushing everywhere. After a bit I climbed out and went to photograph the pool.. you really can get some neat compositions in and around there. It has to be my favourite place in the ES.
Then came a coffee and a land based shoot . It was still early at this point; tidal movements were settling and that left was cranking!! You name it surfers were ripping rails, floating hight and laying down curvaceous carves. Was it our imagination or had the conditions improved!? Um, Yes!! Let's go again..
Swim #2 - This time we grabbed our fish eye wide angle lenses with one aim : getting pitted. Yes, Yes, Yes! Barrel after barrel after barrel ... after barrel. We scored some absolute beauties, some really large hollow beauties. One in particular I reckon you could have parked cars (plural intended) in.
After 3 + hours of being in the water getting smashed we were both spent.. out we got for the final time. We then lucked out, we had been brought down a delicious lunch by amazing Ana; just what was needed. Then for an afternoon chill in the shade.
A perfect day in Bronte :-) Again tomorrow ~
See you there,
