I can’t believe it’s already the last day of summer and right on cue the weather’s gone south here in Sydney. Or rather it’s come from the south — a cool, wet change to usher in autumn. Here’s a few shots from my summer wanderings.
Ex-cyclone Oswald brought some big swells to Sydney beaches today. Manly was looking pretty messy early this morning after last night’s storm, with a torrent of dirty brown run-off spewing out of Queenscliff lagoon into the sea. South Manly offered some decent waves for those who were game. Here’s a few photos I took this afternoon.
Wow. The wild weather that has caused so much devastation in Queensland arrived in Sydney today. Ex-tropical cyclone Oswald drenched the city and churned up the surf. I’ve battened down the hatches and hope that my ageing window frames survive the storm. The boys went for a sail on Sydney Harbour this morning before the weather turned really ugly.
I was lucky enough to have a prime position to see the New Year fireworks on Sydney Harbour last night. What a show!
It was hot and humid in Sydney overnight so I woke up feeling murky and grey and nothing was in focus. A bit like these pictures from my morning swim. But it was beautiful none-the-less and I even got to say hello to a ray.
I never get bored of watching the sunrise. Good to see some people are already up, making the most of it.
