Day 2: Big Swell at Narrabeen

Day 2: Big Swell at Narrabeen

The morning brought with it smooth hollow waves. I spent the first couple of hours shooting again at Marquesas at Narrabeen. It was a beautiful sunrise with only a couple of clouds on the horizon, a nice change after all the rain over the last few days.
Marquesas can be a quite heavy shore break and a couple of people have come out of the water with snapped boards over the last couple of days but for those that pull it off the rewards can be great. In case you missed yesterdays post you can find the shots here

Surfing at Marquesas, Narrabeen

Recent storms have whipped up a solid swell here in Sydney. I got down to Marqesas at Narrabeen Beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and got a few shots done. The light conditions was quite variable. It was grey when I first got there but right at sunset a beautiful golden light shone through for a few minutes. I tried to keep shooting after sunset but it got dark quite quickly I’m hoping to get down there also early tomorrow morning and pick up the sunrise with a nice swell. Hopefully there will be plenty of people out surfing..

Surf on the Northern Beaches

Surf on the Northern Beaches

There has been a few waves around on Sydney’s beaches this last week. Although I don’t really have the lens for surf photography I thought I should take myself down to a few of the local beaches and see if I could get any shots. For surf shots like these I could really do with a much bigger lens but that’s just not going to happen at the moment.I am going to make a special effort to get up early in the morning and get myself down to the beach to go shooting.  Although I love the sunrise and all I have never been much of a morning person so this will be quite a struggle for me but worth the effort I am sure or so I am going to keep telling myself.
