There are times when you just can’t be bothered to lug your camera gear around. And you don’t always need to with most phone cameras these days. It’s hard to see what you’re shooting sometimes, but here’s a few shots, mostly taken around Sydney, that have somehow turned out okay.

Sculpture by the Sea 2012
An alternative angle on sunrise. Here are some shots we took a couple of weeks ago (before the weather turned wild) experimenting with new ways to photograph the sunrise. What do you think?
Salt in the air
After several weeks of beautiful calm weather and flat seas, some swell finally rolled in. I woke up this morning to see some pretty big sets arriving at Freshwater Beach. Two crazy surf-skiers were out there enjoying the wild ride.
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.
What a contrast from last weekend. Offshore winds flattened the surf making great conditions for snorkelers, divers and SUP-boarders.
Big winds this weekend – enough to blow dogs off chains…. or yachts off moorings.
I haven’t posted for a while. Partly because it’s winter and the days are short — I leave for work in the dark and come home in the dark so I haven’t had much time to get out with my camera. Shame because winter is beautiful here — the air is crisp and clear and when it’s not raining the beach is awesome. Hopefully I’ll see some whales cruising past soon. In the meantime, here’s a selection of photos from my cloud collection. Remember, I have warned you before, I’m a cloud nerd. (Click on the thumbnails below to view the gallery)
If you’re a cloud nerd too, you’re not alone, there is help! Check out The Cloud Appreciation Society.

My first post on this blog was a photo of a kookabura in the early morning light sitting on my balcony. Seven months on I’m still going with the blog and I got another chance to snap a kookabura — on a friend’s balcony this time. A few seconds later a whole flock of them flew down from the trees. Nice of them all to pose for me!
