I have a facination with waves and this is my favourite place for photographing them (close to home).

Behind the rock is Open Bay Island which lies three miles out to sea and was named by Captain Cook. This uninhabited island is home to a large seal colony and a variety of sea and bird life including Little Blue penquins.

In 1854 a whaling ship stopped at the island and left four men to gather seal skins. The ship went away and never came back. The men survived on the island for four years before they were picked up by another ship. Apparently they managed to get to the mainland but went back to the island because there were no sandflies out there. Twenty years later the first settlers arrived in the area.

Hi Neroli,

Fantastic shot. Like the wave hitting the big rock. I also like the wet beach and slight reflexion of the rock on it. Clouds and blue sky adds to the composition. TFS.

PC :)

Hello Neroli,
A very dramatic and magnificant scene and all with a really well chosen exposure, the splashing waves against the rocks are captivating. :)

Hi Neroli,
I can really feel the beauty of this place from this image.
You have captured the light, waves, and color wonderfully.
Well done.

hello Neroli,
Very light and inviting atmosphre on this beach. I would like to walk there and just look at the waves.
Well seen

Hello Neroli,
great light and colors, the white foam is well captured in its wild force, all the particulars are neat. I understand your taste for this site.

Hi Neroli,
Wow! a very stunning photo with plenty of wave action. You really got the moment captured perfectly. You also did it at the perfect time of the day. The light hitting the wave is awesome.

This is really nice Neroli. You caught the wave perfectly and in some great light too. The glistening sand and reflections in the foreground is really nice too.I like the angled point of view.

really nice shot, good soft tones in the sky combined with the drama of the wave crashing against the rock works very well.



Hi Neroli,

What a fantastic shot. Just the right moment. Very rough sea. Is a wonderful compo. The late sunlight strikes over the sea and the wild waves. Yes, I like that. And a very interesting note (history lesson (-:)Thanks for that. Have a nice weekend. Regards and TFS Bob
