Precarious Position: First Seascape of 2018

This image of Turimetta Beach was captured during my first seascape session in nearly a year, and this was the first time I have returned to Turimetta since 2012.  The conditions were a lot more dangerous than this image would suggest, with a strong south-easterly wind, medium-to-large swell and an incoming tide.  Large waves were [ continue reading ]

Turimetta Triumph

After some recent strong urges to return to seascaping, I jumped back in (figuratively and literally) this morning.  At 4:45am, I met Tony at Turimetta (a veritable 'Mecca' for seascape photographers) on Sydney's Northern Beaches, and we headed down to the famous Turimetta gorge on the southern end of the beach.  My original intention was to [ continue reading ]
