Big Tuesday at Manly

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.

Hello summer, where’s the sun?

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 love how small waves look big when you get down low with a wide angle

Ok that’s enough. Back to dry land for coffee.

Waiting for the sun

It’s the spring equinox today (according the Australian Bureau of Meteorology), which means that day and night are equal duration. Technically it’s when the Earth’s axis is perpendicular to the sun. I think! Anyway, we had a beautiful sunrise at Manly at around 5:43 this morning.
