Took advantage of a short day at work to go explore the cliffs north of Bondi.


Potter Point Sunset

With a bit of time on my hands, a forecast for high cloud around sunset, I drove down to Kamay Botany Bay National Park in Sydney's south.  I also wanted to play with my new Hitech 6 stop ND during the day.  The sandstone cliffs offer a few different interesting compositions as well as interesting patterns in the stone itself.

 

A quick behind the camera snap as I wait for sunset.

Near the shore of Loch Maree, part of the route to the summit of Slioch.  We were walking to the waterfalls nearby. Despite all the photogenic mountains surrounding the walk, I was drawn to the lines and shapes in these trees.

 


Bow Fiddle Rock

Given that I spent 3 weeks back in Scotland in February I have a few new photos to add to the website .  This is of the only morning I braved to get up for a pre sunrise shoot. Located on the Morayshire coast near Portknockie, conviently only 10mins from where we were staying the night in little Portsoy.  Bow Fiddle Rock is a place I've been keen to visit so it was nice to capture it on a moody morning.

Bombo Quarry

 

 

A nice casual 5.30am sunrise thats about 2 hours from home, is always a fair commitment but to witness the power of the ocean against these basalt columns at this abandoned quarry is a truly special sight.  Ever since I moved to Sydney a visit down to Bombo Quarry, just minutes north of Kiama has always been on my photography wish list, but timing it for a sunrise has always put me off giving its distance from home.  Finally I made the effort to get down with promising conditions of a good swell, around high tide and a cloudy/rainy weather forecast.  I didn't really expect a colourful sunrise, but I got very lucky!  

The coast around Kiama is pretty spectacular for photography, with a host of great locations all within a few minutes of each other.  So to make the most of my time, I stopped off at a couple other spots after sunrise at Cathedral Rocks and Minnamurra.  Maybe I'll get a chance to visit them in better conditions in the future.

Here is a quick map of the local area on google maps with parking locations and rough routes for anyone who wants to visit these places.
