The eastern suburbs of Sydney are so spoilt when it comes to amazing geological formations. Around every corner is something that will take your breath away. These cliffs for example are actually quite high and to put things into perspective from the sea level to the tip of the cliff up there is around 20 meters. It was high tide and there was a big swell so the waves were crashing up on the cliffs and then washing off in a very dramatic way, creating mini waterfalls.
I arrived along this stretch of the coast well before sunset and had a lot of fun exploring the area. Mahon Pool is just down from here and some other amazing natural rock formations as well. A photograph has the ability to take the viewer a million miles away but as photographers we can also experience this same feeling whilst taking the images. On a shoot like this when there is a beautiful ocean scene before you, the wind is blowing salty sea air in your face, the waves are crashing into the rocks and the sky is changing colours like a monet painting… you can’t help but be swept up in the moment and forget all your troubles. It’s reasons like this that I love my craft!
