Well after checking out www.swellnet.com.au I saw that today was going to have some pretty decent waves and that the wind was going to be offshore for most of the day so I hit Trigg Beach at 8am this morning and obviously the word was already out as a massive crew was packing out the lineup. I captured some awesome shots with a number of guys getting heaps of air, I’ll save them for later. If this is the sort of waves we are getting in autumn I can’t wait to see what Winter throws at us once the sand banks built up.
Well the weekend didn’t pan out as expected. I tried to get some shots down at Canal Rocks, but more about that later. Melissa and I woke up on Sunday morning and headed out for breakfast, I looked out the window and saw the surf at Bunker Bay was cranking so I grabbed my camera and headed down to the beach. It was awesome to watch and the guys were going ballastic out there. I was using a 2x Convertor on my 70-200 lens which I’m still not sure if I like or not. To me this image is really soft, its not sharp which is what I’m expecting. I’m going to trial a 100-400mm lens next time and compare the results.
Highlight of the weekend was catching up with Mr Fletcher for a coffee and having a great chat.
