Last weekend, I headed down to Bronte beach again to shoot a squally high-tide at dawn. Sydney had been doused in rain and the sea’s had been whipped up by a dissipating storm cell further north. This resulted in wide-spread beach closures and coastal warnings all along the eastern seaboard.
I confess its quite a challenge to shoot in high winds, driving salt spray and intermittent drizzle. Not my proudest set of images but, I have to say, the ocean was spectacular. If you’ve seen any of my other posts of Bronte’s serene rockpool and baths at sunrise you’ll notice the contrast. If you like, you can refresh your memory here and here. Nature can be so awesome!

Above: At low-tide, I normally set-up in the rock pool near the base of the step ladder (which is just sticking up through the surging water here). The edge of the pool is almost 3 meters above the waterline when the tide is out.
