Last night on Hamilton Island.. we have had some good luck with the weather, considering how bad it has been on the rest of the coast, with floods in Brisbane and snow on the mountains in NSW & Victoria. Apart from not being able to go to Whitehaven Beach due to onshore winds, none of our other activities have been affected. This evening though a large thunderstorm moved across the bay
Cronulla Beach, Sydney
This short time lapse is a much better attempt than my last, with hardly any flickering or jitters. After taking the rainbow shot (See below) I turned camera towards the storm front and recorded above time lapse over about 10 minutes…
Each frame is a HDR photo made from 2 shots 1 EV apart. Towards the end I was lucky enough to record a lightning bolt… I will use this frame as my picture tomorrow…
Wanda Beach, Sydney
I went down to Cronulla for a surf after work as usual.. making the most of the last 2 weeks of Daylight Savings Time.. but there was no surf to be had… there was however, a nice storm front coming through, complete with half a rainbow… This picture was taken looking North.. the storm moved up from the South.. I took a short HDR time lapse movie of the front moving up as the sunset and even managed to capture a lightning strike so the above was actually my second best pic of the day… I’m still processing the HDR time lapse.. they take ages… and will put up shortly..
Byron Bay, NSW We got up at sunrise, checked out early and drove to The Pass, the closest beach to Byron Bay town, It was already crowded, and too protected from the larger swell. Next stop was Broken Head, where I took the picture above. It was also small here so we continued onto Lennox Head. Although the tide was just coming off high, there were some great waves there, uncrowded 6ft peaks. I took some shots of the guys surfing there.. I will post next.
Cronulla Beach, Sydney For mmlim who wanted a picture of a rainy beach!! Very easy to find in Sydney right now…. There was a shark attack on a surfer at Bondi Beach yesterday… the first in 80 years… Australia is not having much luck lately! The good news though.. is that the surf was up after a flat spell.. and for some reason the crowds were down.. ahah… I went in at Cronulla today, but didn’t stay out for long…got washed out by the rain.. plus it was getting close to feeding time…
