big swell

hi.. 
one of my first ever posts almost a year ago was called big swell. i took you along my favourite part of the sydney coast, the spectacular bronte to bondi walk. 
so here we are again one year later. a most stunning day, sparkling sea and a huge swell hitting the coast at a beach renowned for big waves.
the best way out for surfers is over the back of the pool. a bit of a wait for the lull between sets. the other way out.. get a ride on a jet ski.





















one of those days when you realise
it's great to be alive!

  12. I once saw the funniest thing at Bronte Beach in a big surf. An older guy was standing up on the headland at the southern end of the beach having his photo taken. A wave rose up and licked the top of his balding head, giving him a comb over. He was practically dry everywhere except for the top of his head. Looks like they close it off these days with those big gates, in big surf

    I love your shots of the surfers around the pool.

  15. Yes I'd just seen them & still have it open to show my husband when he gets into the office - he's a mad keen surfer which was part of the Bondi attraction. He thought the swell was mammoth & couldn't believe people were surfing it! We loved that walk - watching most of the surfers getting creamed! Totally spectacular!!! Great photos too! Loved Camilla too...loved everything!
