Some big swell rolled in to the coast the last few days, So I spent most of the day Tuesday driving around. From Rainbow Bay at Coolangatta to Burleigh Heads and Currumbin. The beaches were closed, but there were still a few nutters that had a surf when it calmed down a little. It’s the most pics I have shot in a day for a long time. Apparently the swell got to about 5.7 metres. With a strong off shore breeze blowing the tops off the waves.
Vikings Surf Club at Currumbin offered coffee’s with salt spray and when it dried you could sprinkle it on your chips or just lick your lips
All this while Cape Naturalist in the SW of WA had 6m swell and 3 metre seas and it peaked at 53 knot winds. I’ll reserve my opinion till I see the Gold Coast in a cyclone
Here’s a few from the day
The first and the last shot show how the same place can look so different at different times of day. Photography is all about the light. More to come, Just don’t want to overload you. The best bit was there was always a cafe close by with ocean views.
