– Sugarloaf Swells –



I am still going through a few image from last weekends trip down south with StuartTina and Shirley. This one coming from Sugarloaf Rock, showing a very nice consistent surf break.
The south-west has arguably some of the best surf in the world, and this was a small day. If only a surfer was on the wave, you would be able to get a sense of the size it was coming through at.

Yallingup & Margaret River, Western Australia

Yallingup is a small town in the south-west of Western Australia, renowned for it world class surf. This particular weekend was amazing. The swell was up, the wind was offshore, and everyone flocked to the numerous world class breaks the south west is renowned for.

This shot was taken with the GigaPan, its consists of 36 images. 3 rows of 12 photos. Stitched in PTGui, and taken with the beautiful Ziess 21mm f2.8 distagon.
Getting amongst it.
Yallingup, one of the most picturesque surf spots in Australia.
Beautiful swells

Not only standup and bodyboarders enjoyed the conditions, when the wind turned onshore the windsurfers came out to play off Prevelly.

Decent swell, these guys were nailing the runs

Storm fronts moving over the Perth Coast

Still not a whole lot of activity has been happening on the western front in the last few months, so again I have been wondering through the storm archives on my hard drive and found this image of the leading edge of a storm that passed over the Perth coast in December last year. Little did I know at the time I took this photo, that later on that evening I would capture some of my best lightning photos to date.
The rest of my photos (including the lightning I captured) from the night can be found here:
