We had a pretty solid Easterly swell roll through the east coast of Australia over the last week. The waves were big and grinding along the southern points. With new work comittments, I could only get out for a couple of hours on the last day. We have a new peak in swell today, so hopefully the conditions align this afternoon and there is something chunky to shoot. Some swell leftover shots below.
It's always a nice drive along the old highway through Northern NSW, but even more special in Autumn, when the morning fog makes its way over the hills of Duranbah and smother the fields to the west, all the way out to Murwillumbah and beyond. I stopped to take a few snaps this morning on my Nikon, because you never know when it might end. I cherish these days where we can still breathe fresh air and find space. Something that future generations will struggle to find. I wonder what this area will be in 50 years, or if we will realise that the wealth is in the fruits that this land provides.

There is still a solid long period swell left hanging around thanks to Cyclone Victor, so Kel and I decided to spend 'Invasion Day' exploring the South Coast yesterday. It was an epic day of driving, food, coffee, surfing, hiking, animals, rain, injuries and singalongs. Days off, out of the office are so refreshing - especially when visiting the waves in some of the South Coast national parks. The preserved environment is a great reminder of how Australia would have been before it was colonised on the day that Australia celebrates.
Got a new toy today and spent the afternoon shooting around Redfern and the Fernside skate park to get the hang of it. Met a rad gent by the name of Nathan who lives in Tokyo. He was over here on holiday, giving the pipe a nudge and friendly enough to say hello. Winter light is off it's head, but I've got a lot of learning to do with this new (old) lens on my d800e.
